Residence life

Welcome to your residence life community

Starting at university can mean living independently for the first time which can be daunting for some. The residence life team is here to provide support and to help you settle into your new home. Moving into University-managed halls of residence is the beginning of something very exciting. You'll become part of a much bigger, supportive, fun and vibrant community of like-minded people.

To help you settle in we have put together an exclusive Residence Life events programme for students staying within University-managed halls. We provide a wide range of events, competitions and fundraiser, and aim to cater to everyone's taste and hobbies. Previous events include Cinema trips, game nights, inter hall competitions, sporting events and more. These events are a fantastic way for you to meet new people and to try new experiences.

All events are hosted by our friendly Halls Team, so be sure to check out our Residence Life events page or your exclusive halls of residence Facebook groups to find out more. 

Hall Handbook

Your Hall Handbook is a one stop shop for all the information you need while living in halls. It contains information such as: how to access support, emergency contact numbers, where to report maintenance issues and how to pay your accommodation fee's.
