Accommodation

University-managed Halls of Residence

We want you to enjoy living and studying in Plymouth, build life-long friendships and feel fully supported during your time with us. We offer a great variety of halls to choose from which provide a safe and friendly environment for our students.
Your accommodation licence will be with the University, and our halls are provided in partnership with UPP, the UK’s leading provider of on-campus residential and academic accommodation infrastructure.
They provide and maintain the buildings while the University provides a range of support for you, including social events to create great communities, welfare support and 24/7 security to help to keep you safe. 
Our Halls are located on campus, or within the nearby Student Village - only a few minutes’ walk from both University facilities and the city centre! 

Applications for September 2022

Applications for accommodation will open on the 1st of February 2022 for applicants joining the University this Autumn. To make an application for a place in Halls, the University of Plymouth must be your first choice University.

We adhere to the Student Accommodation Code which means that we go the extra mile to make sure that you get the best quality accommodation while you are with us. The Code is managed by an external group which inspects our halls to ensure that they are in tip-top condition.
