You'll be a member of one of our eight undergraduate colleges throughout your time here. Our colleges are more than just halls of residence. As well as social, study and catering facilities, they offer:

  • Support and guidance via a dedicated team of tutors and staff
  • Activities and events to bring together students, staff and alumni
  • Opportunities to meet new people and try new experiences

You don't need to apply for a particular college based on your course. Our campus location means that all our colleges are a short walk from your departments and teaching buildings.

Families and couples

Most of our rooms are for individual applicants, but if you wish to live with your partner and/or children, you can apply for our studio flats or houses. These aren't guaranteed, but we will try our best to help.

Nursing and Midwifery students

Following students feedback, we’ve changed how we allocate Nursing and Midwifery accommodation. Instead of housing you together, you’ll live with students on other courses and can apply for any self-catered accommodation. Due to the nature of your course, you may find it more convenient to apply for a 44 week let. 

Current International Pathway College (IPC) students

If you're currently studying with us as an IPC student, we'll contact you about how to apply for accommodation.

Pre-sessional students (Economics Summer School)

If you're attending a 20 or 15 week pre-sessional course, you'll receive a room booking once you have paid the tuition fees and accepted your course place by the date on our pre-sessional page.

Hull York Medical School (HYMS) students

For your first two years at Hull York Medical School (HYMS) you'll be based at either the Hull or York campus.

If your application to HYMS is successful, you'll receive details of your designated campus with your programme offer, and will be sent information on how to apply for accommodation.

Beyond your first year

If you love living in a college, you can apply to live on campus for each year that you're here. You can apply individually or with your friends, and benefit from hassle-free payment with no bills or hidden costs to worry about.
