Accommodation and living costs

Fees, funding and living costs

Students' Union can help

The Students' Union organises a house-hunting weekend in mid-August to help new postgraduates meet each other and form groups for housesharing.


The University offers a wide range of accommodation to suit all budgets. Please visit the Accommodation pages for more information.

Cost of living

You also need to budget for your accommodation and living expenses. The student money service provides a comprehensive and confidential service to all students. They publish a wealth of information such as tips on budgeting, to advice on increasing income and guidance on where funds might be available.
