Private halls of residence and private housing

Living in private halls of residence

This year we have secured rooms in private halls of residence for students applying through Clearing. Although they aren’t managed by us, they are close to the campus and you’ll still be living with other students in a halls environment.

  • Astor House - managed by iQ Student Accommodation
  • Alexandra Works - managed by Unite Students


If you are interested in any of these private halls, please contact Residence Life who will assist you with the booking process. You can call our team on +44 (0)1752 588644.
