Families and couples

The University Accommodation Services office will give you every possible assistance to find suitable accommodation, but as demand for this type of accommodation is sometimes greater than the number of properties available, the University cannot guarantee that suitable housing will always be found.

For more information please contact the accommodation office via email on or by phone on +44 114 222 4488 (option 2).
