Postgraduate accommodation

The majority of our postgraduate accommodation is in Wentworth, our postgraduate-only college. Postgraduates can choose between self-catered single rooms and studio flats, conveniently located on our compact campus and close to university facilities.

How to apply

Applications for the 2021/22 academic year are currently closed as we are fully booked on campus.

Applications for 2022/23 will be opening in early 2022

Postgraduate international students (either on taught or research programmes) who have accepted an offer of a place can apply for accommodation.

We have a limited number of rooms available so you’re encouraged to accept your offer, apply early and pay an accommodation advance payment of £200 to complete your application no later than 9 June 2022. You will be prioritised for an offer of a room in accommodation owned, managed or approved by the University if you meet all of the following criteria:

  • you’re a new, full-time postgraduate student starting in September 2022, and applying for a single room for the full academic year
  • you’re an international student paying tuition fees at the overseas rate
  • you accept your offer, apply for accommodation and pay an advance payment of £200 to complete your accommodation application no later than 9 June 2022.

Even if you don’t meet the criteria above you can still apply for accommodation. If we can’t offer University accommodation, either because you are not eligible or we are full, we can advise you on private renting options.

Location

Our on-campus accommodation is close to University buildings and facilities. With just a short walk to the library, cafes, study and social spaces, you'll have university life on your doorstep - helping you to make the most of your time here.

Most postgraduates who live on campus are located in Wentworth College and if you’re not, you’ll still be a member of whichever college you live in and housed with other postgraduates too. 

Postgraduate accommodation is also available through our partner accommodation providers. These modern developments, Frederick House and Student Castle, are only a short distance from campus and offer contemporary, safe and comfortable accommodation. 

All postgraduates, wherever you live, will also have access to the postgraduate only common room in Wentworth college.


Let length

51-week lets

All postgraduate rooms are 51 week lets, covering the academic term, Easter, Christmas and Summer vacations.


Bathroom type

In Shared accommodation, you'll have a wash basin in your room and share other bathroom facilities with your flat.

All shared bathrooms are individually lockable and cleaned Monday to Friday by our cleaning team. Toilet roll is provided for you.

In Ensuite accommodation, you'll have your own toilet, wash basin and shower in your room. 

You’ll be responsible for keeping your ensuite clean, but our cleaners will perform a deep clean, usually once a term. Toilet roll is not included, so you'll need to buy your own.
