Visitor accommodation

Prospective students

If you are a prospective student and just want to look around the campuses you are welcome to visit and view the location of our residences. You will be able to view inside specific residences during Open Days, Offer Holder Visit Days and before campus tours however, due to students being in residence and conference commitments it is not possible to view accommodation at any other time. Please view our accommodation virtual tours to see a sample of the rooms available at the University.

See our Open Days page for further information about campus tours including when it is possible to view the accommodation, or contact Student Recruitment on 01392 724043 or
