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 – the choice is yours.

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.

Self-catered accommodation

If you choose self-catered accommodation, you can cook for yourself and your flatmates in a communal kitchen.

Returning students and postgraduates are only able to apply for self-catered accommodation.

Catered accommodation

If you're an undergraduate you can apply to stay in catered accommodation. Here, you'll be able to use Eat and Drink Credit to buy yourself meals from the huge range of eateries on campus.

Choosing your accommodation options

The number of options you have will vary based on your course, level of study and offer status.

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 2015, the University was ranked first 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.

Secure accommodation

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
