Living the student life


Living on Campus

Situated on the waterfront at our Docklands Campus, our modern accommodation halls are close to teaching buildings, our sport & fitness facilities and the library.  We offer a free inter-campus bus service, which provides a convenient transport link to our Stratford and USS Campus too. 

Supermarkets and local amenities are a 10-minute walk away. Cyprus DLR train station is part of the campus, giving you a gateway to explore the rest of London. Our Halls have a 24/7 Security Reception who monitor our 10 buildings, plus we have a dedicated Residential Life team with close links to University support services and social programming. Our prices vary with room type, but all rooms offer the privacy of being single en-suite.  We also offer additional value by including home contents insurance, utility bills and 5G Internet/Wi-Fi within our advertised prices; taking the stress out of managing multiple contracts and arranging a spread of payments to different providers.  We keep it simple so you can focus on your studies. 

More details about room types, pricing and how to apply for Halls can be found on our accommodation website.

Moving into Halls of Residence

If you have already secured a room in our Halls of Residence and have paid your deposit, our Airport Transfer Service can take from the airport straight to your door.  See the Airport Transfer Service section for more information about how to register for this service. 

If you are arriving to campus by taxi or you have arranged a lift from the airport, you are welcome to bring a car on to campus to drop off your luggage, but please be aware that there is limited space for unloading and parking on campus, and it can get busy. 

Once you’ve unloaded and arrived in your new room, our Residential Life team will provide a programme of virtual social opportunities to help you familiarise yourself with your surroundings and meet your fellow student flatmates or neighbours. 

If you are required to self-isolate on arrival to the UK, we strongly recommend you opt-into one of our self-isolation support packages. More information and how to book can be found here.

Living off campus

As a University, we do not have a dedicated off-campus accommodation advice team, so you will need to undertake your own research in finding a place to stay. Our Students Union does provide lots of information and advice about housing and they will help if they can. You can find details of this service on their useful Housing Advice Pages.
