Robbins Hall

Nestled in the centre of the Student Village, this lively hall is great value for money and is situated directly opposite the main University campus.  Robbins has a really strong community feel and it's a great place to meet new people. With the city centre literally on your doorstep, you'll find everything you need within a few minutes' walk. This hall offers 268 Standard and Loft rooms and 162 En suite rooms, and is perfect for undergraduates, postgraduates, international students and returning residents.

“I did a lot of research and made Robbins my first choice. It's cheap and cheerful. The place feels like it's lived in and it's close to campus, close to the village and I have a lovely balcony, which is great. It's really affordable so I have lots of money left over to buy groceries and to go out!”
