A Student’s Perspective: Living in Halls

Moving away from home to a new area, with totally new people and into a totally new building, can be quite a daunting concept but about an hour after settling in, student accommodation is just fine! The scary aspect of it slowly drifts away as you start to unpack your room and meet more and more new people. Yes it may seem odd starting a conversation with a stranger but these strangers could turn out to be your friends for life.

You are not alone


Living in student accommodation can be great fun as you are never alone.  There is always someone’s door to knock on, or someone to annoy when you’re bored, or someone to go shopping with! Basically there will be a person to do anything and everything with!

Applicant Days, in the words of our Applicants


By now, you've probably had at least one invitation from us to attend an Applicant Day. Even if you've visited us on an Open Day, it's certainly worth making another visit as the events are smaller, giving you more time to spend in the subject area(s) of your choice. Your questions for our staff and students will likely be different, as you'll be narrowing your options down, and have a better idea of what you're looking for from your university choices. They are also a great opportunity to have a look at the local city where you could be spending the next three years of your life, so take some time to explore the surroundings.
