Housing costs

This page details the costs payable for University Housing.

Detailed below are the residence fees for the 2018-19 academic year. Figures given here are rounded to give a headline cost. The exact cost for payment purposes will be given during the online room offer process, which occurs during June-September. Costs for 2019-20 will be subject to an increase.

All residences fees include heating, water, electricity, Internet costs and basic contents insurance.

Please be advised that there is no deposit payable for any university owned or managed accommodation. This may differ for any accommodation owned and/or managed privately.

Contents Insurance

We have partnered with student insurance provider Endsleigh to provide some cover for the contents in your room if you live in University Managed Accommodation (either on or off campus*).

You don’t need to do anything to action this cover, but we encourage you to ensure you fully understand the protection provided and check it is sufficient for your needs.

*If you live in Riverside Way or Cathedral Point, you have a separate cover agreement with Endsleigh and you can use the same link above to check the cover available.

Self-Catered Accommodation

Self-catered rooms start from under £3,500 for a shared room and under £4,500 for a single room.

The self-catered Licence covers the Christmas and Easter vacations and there is no requirement for residents to move out during these times.

Catered Accommodation

A catered room offers the peace of mind of knowing that most of your food is already paid for, as catering fees (approximately 14 meals per week) are included in the total residence fee.

The catered contract is a term time only contract. During the Christmas vacation, a half fee retainer is paid (included in the total residence fee) and residents must move out but may leave belongings in their room. During the Easter vacation, no fees are paid and residents must move out completely (including removing all belongings).

This figure includes your room fee, catering fees and the half rent Christmas retainer fee.

Couples and student with families

There are a small number of one and two bedroom Self-contained self-catering flats available within our vibrant student villages.  These are available on a 50-week licence agreement.
