We offer a guarantee of accommodation for international students starting their degree in September, subject to qualifying criteria. Contracts for international students commence on 18 September 2020 in time for International Welcome Week. 

We offer you the choice of 10 halls of residence, which means you’ll get the chance to meet lots of new people.
