We want you to be happy in every aspect of your life at university, and that includes finding a home which is friendly, comfortable and safe.

Accommodation for January 2023

If you've accepted a place to study with us in January, we look forward to welcoming you onto campus. Our University managed accommodation is fully booked and there are very limited private sector options.

If you are an international student, you must book accommodation before you travel to the UK. If you are unable to secure accommodation you are strongly advised not to travel to the UK and should defer your offer of a place to study with us until the next intake in September 2023.

If you will be commuting, you can find information about travelling to our campuses in Cambridge, Chelmsford and Peterborough.
