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 – 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.
Catered and self-catered accommodation
If you choose self-catered accommodation, you can cook for yourself and your flatmates in a communal kitchen. If you prefer to eat out, you can stay in catered accommodation.
Choosing your accommodation options
The number of options you have will vary based on your course, level of study, offer status and when you apply.
We’ll do our best to place in your first choice.
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.
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.
