Sharing Accommodation

Information for religious students about sharing accommodation at University. 

All students have an opportunity to mix and live with others from completely different backgrounds when coming to university. This may be the only time in your life that you can really get to see how others live.

The experience is mostly always positive. However, religious students and/or those from religious homes are sometimes surprised by some of the issues raised when sharing accommodation with those from very different backgrounds.

The links below outline some issues raised by students who lived in University housing.

Their comments may help you to:

  • prepare for the things which surprised others
  • decide which kind of accommodation might suit you best
  • think about how you will deal with any challenges you might face
