Postgraduate student accommodation
There is a diverse range of private accommodation close to the DMU campus available to postgraduate students. We recommend you view properties and read all contracts carefully before signing an agreement.
If you have any concerns or are unsure about anything, staff in the Student Union’s Welfare and Education Centre can look over housing contracts before you sign them.
