We’re also just a 15-minute stroll from the Kingsway Campus so you’ll never have to set your alarm at the crack of dawn to get to your lectures. So whether you are looking for a great base to study, or for your time-off, Abbeygate is perfectly positioned for you.

We’ve got a fantastic collection of studios and en suite rooms for you to choose from, and many of them are set in the original Grade II listed wing of the building, which has beautiful original features.

Each room has a spacious work area, small double bed, and en suite shower room. With an en suite, you’ll share a kitchen/living area with your flatmates. Opt for a studio and you’ll have your own well-equipped mini-kitchen area, complete with breakfast bar. They are perfect if you want a bit more space to yourself, or to share as a couple at no additional charge!

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

Staff at Abbeygate are so welcoming and helpful. The socials at the beginning of the year helped me settle in and allowed me to meet new people!

Amy, 3rd year

Well, what can I say? I was made to feel really welcome. 10 out of 10, would recommend to all students.

Emma, 3rd year

I couldn’t have picked a better place to live through uni. The wardens are friendly and so helpful day and night. Also events like Freebie Friday are top notch!

Beth, 3rd year
