Accommodation costs

The biggest cost that you will have to meet while you are at university is likely to be your accommodation. The price you pay includes rent, energy costs, insurance for your belongings, internet access, and membership of The Edge, our flagship gym and pool complex.

We have two dedicated halls for postgraduate students

The prices of our University accommodation vary depending on the residence you live in and the type of room you have.
