We think we’re pretty great, but here’s what some of our students have to say about living with us

The rooms are lovely and the beds are so comfy. If you are looking for affordable accommodation then I would definitely choose to live here.


All my needs as a student are met perfectly and the on site staff are amazing. Definitely the best accommodation I could've chosen to live at whilst at uni.


There is a wonderful outdoor social space with fairy lights - great for parties during the night time in summer. There are also plenty of other seating areas throughout the site.
