We’ll be retaining and operating off-campus accommodation in the halls currently on Park/Avenue campuses – Bassett Lowke, Simon Senlis, William Carey and Spencer Perceval. Prices for 2018 entry for these off-campus options are below, don’t worry if you do choose to stay off campus we’ll be expanding our UNO bus routes to make sure you’re connected to Waterside.
For those current students who are moving to Waterside for your second year or third year of study, and traditionally wouldn’t be staying in Halls of Residence our accommodation team will help you to find the right kind of private accommodation to suit your needs.
Applications for University ran halls open around Spring and information will be sent to offer holders via email.
If halls of residence don’t sound like they’re for you, many of our students live off-campus in private rented accommodation. Our Students Let team regularly update a housing list with details of available properties that meet our high safety standards.
The Students’ Union Student Lets team provide students with advice and guidance on rents, deposits, contracts and related information to help them make informed choices about private sector accommodation. Working in partnership with the Northampton Student Accreditation Scheme (NSAS), DASH Landlord Accreditation and Studentpad, the team maintains a housing list which provides essential information on available properties such as address, rent, property facilities and landlord information.
