Accommodation for students with families

There are a number of things you need to do when you’re sorting out accommodation:

  • understand that getting a study place at university does not mean that you automatically get a place in University accommodation
  • understand from the outset that accommodation developed specifically to meet the needs of student families is in short supply
  • be clear what the options are
  • be clear about what you need, what you can afford, and what you may be prepared to compromise on 
  • secure your accommodation in good time and get your tenancy confirmed.

Make sure you read all the material that we provide on family accommodation in these pages. It should answer a lot of the questions and address some of the anxieties you may have. It will help you steer a clear course through the task of finding suitable accommodation for you and your family, and will help you get the most out of wherever you live and local services and opportunities.
