Visitor Accommodation

If your department has a short term visitor we can help with accommodation.  We have a range of room options depending on the duration of their visit to the University (subject to availability).

Please check availability with us before making final arrangements, booking flights, etc.  We try our best to meet all accommodation requests but it these fall outside or continue beyond normal 1st or 2nd semester dates it can be difficult to guarantee that rooms will be available.

All properties come with a welcome guide that includes information on the local area, map and contact details.

Who to contact:

The Student Accommodation Office can provide information and advice. 

Please contact Julie Best – Student Accommodation Manager
