Halls of residence general information
The communities that make up our halls of residence provide a lasting impression with students, with many creating memories and relationships that last a lifetime.
Our accommodation teams understand that transitioning from high school to University can be an overwhelming experience, which is why all of our first-year halls offer a safe and supportive environment to guide you through your first year.
In addition to social and recreational events organised throughout the year, our teams ensure that academic mentoring and informal study groups are available to encourage and engage our residents, and align them for personal and academic success.
