Spaces are still available in our halls of residence for January 2020. This is the perfect opportunity to build relationships within UCB’s diverse community and we urge all new students to consider living with us. Our accommodation covers a 42 week period unlike many external providers that may hold you to a 48 week contract or even longer. 



We aim to provide you with a high quality, safe, affordable and happy environment for your academic and social life. We have a dedicated service to help you find the accommodation you need, which is open throughout the academic year. Available to all students enrolled at the University, you can use the service on a ‘drop-in’ basis or email for advice and information about any housing-related issue Assistant Hall Managers, based in all university-managed accommodation, are there to offer support and advise on your welfare and security.

Organising your accommodation

It is very important that you apply for your accommodation as soon as you receive an offer (i.e., conditional/unconditional). If you are booking UCB accommodation, once you receive this offer it is vital you return the relevant documentation within 14 days. Failure to do so will result in your accommodation being cancelled unless contact has been made with the Accommodation Officer prior to the expiry of the 14-day period. For further information, you should contact the UCB accommodation service.

If you are travelling from abroad, you can pre-book all your bedroom and kitchen equipment through our partner UniKitOut at using code UCB10 to receive a 10% discount. All orders will be delivered to your accommodation before you arrive.

Although we recommend living in university managed accommodation, UCB Guild Student Homes offer a host of accredited landlords and agencies for private sector accommodation.
