Students from North America have a wide range of choices when it comes to finding a modern and comfortable place to live while they undertake their studies. The most popular options are on-campus self-catering units, particularly for the first or second years. There are also a number of privately run student apartment blocks which are centrally located convenient to each of the universities. All units come with Wi-Fi and are fitted to a high standard. A deposit to reserve your accommodations will be required before the academic year begins and prices will vary between schools and desired housing.

Reserving your housing is mainly handled through the individual university accommodations offices. If you receive and accept an offer of admission, detailed information regarding the booking process and contact information will be provided and it will be university specific. Early booking is advised as places do fill up quickly.
