Choose your student accommodation options
Look at our student accommodation to help you decide where you'd like to live, on campus or in the city.
Living in University accommodation
Become part of a great student community that will make you feel like the University of Bath is your home away from home. You can live on the campus or in the heart of the city, in catered or self-catered accommodation.
Our accommodation is specially designed with all students in mind. You can pick somewhere to suit your budget and your lifestyle.
If you have a disability or medical condition, let us know and we'll consider your needs when we look at accommodation applications.
No matter where you are, you're never far from transport links with regular buses between campus and the city centre.
If you choose self-catered accommodation, you can cook for yourself and your flatmates in a communal kitchen.
Postgraduates can only apply for self-catered accommodation.
Choosing your accommodation options
If you are an eligible first year undergraduate student and apply by the 1 July deadline, we can guarantee you accommodation.
The number of options you have will vary based on your course, level of study and offer status.
When you apply, you will be selecting preferred room types, like en-suite, standard, shared, etc. rather than specific buildings.
We’ll do our best to place you in your preferred room type, but we cannot guarantee this.
Safe and secure
Bath is considered one of the safest cities in the world and our campus is safe too.
In 2017, the University was ranked third for good security in the Times Higher Education Student Experience Survey. We have also been accredited by the Association of Chief Police Officers as a secure environment. If you live in our accommodation, you will often see our Security team on patrol.
You can only access your accommodation with your specially programmed library card and keys. This system helps to keep you and your belongings safe. There is also CCTV on campus, in public areas of accommodation and around the University.
Insurance as part of your package
You will get contents insurance that covers your property against fire, theft and damage.
If you are an eligible first year undergraduate and apply by the 1 July deadline, you are guaranteed accommodation.
