If you are struggling to decide which bands should be at the top of your preferences, take a look at our guidance below.
If price is important to you we recommend you take a look at the Halls of Residence fees online before selecting your preferences. If you’re looking for the cheapest accommodation, Band W might be best for you.
All our Halls of Residence for postgraduates are self-catered, this means that you’ll have access to a shared kitchen where you can cook your own meals. This doesn’t mean that you can’t enjoy a meal in the food outlets on campus as well, if you need a break from cooking!
You can choose en-suite facilities which means you’ll have access to your own toilet, sink and shower or shared facilities, which means you'll share a bathroom with students in your flat or house.
For a quick breakdown on which bands have shared or en-suite bathroom facilities, please see the Halls of Residence fees information.
If you have a medical condition or disability that means you need to live in Halls of Residence, you’ll have to register with the Disability and Dyslexia Services team as well as submitting an application for accommodation before the application window closes. If you’re assessed as needing priority by our Disability and Dyslexia Services team, you’ll be allocated a room (subject to availability) based on the assessment of your needs.
For full information about the facilities of all our Halls of Residence, visit our Living in Halls webpages.
