Student Accommodation Code

It’s important to us that your accommodation is safe and of a good standard. The University’s eligible properties are signed up to the Student Accommodation Code. All off-campus houses are subject to House of Multiple Occupation (HMO) licensing laws and several of our houses are accredited by the local council. Externally-managed accommodation is covered by Unipol/ANUK National Code.

*Accommodation availability
We still have plenty of vacancies available at our Cambridge and Chelmsford campus, but early booking is recommended. You can contact our accommodation team who will support you in finding the right option, whether on campus or in the private sector. Our guarantee is available until 30 June 2022.
