Accommodation

Our University accommodation provides excellent value for money, and you’ll find everything you need to make your stay homely and comfortable. Living in University accommodation is the easiest way to meet other students from around the world and make new friends.

A friendly community

The University has over 1,600 places available in accommodation and we do our best to accommodate your needs, including single-sex and quiet corridors on request and specially adapted rooms for students with a disability. Safety sits as high on our list of priorities as it does on yours. That’s why there’s a 24-hour caretaking/security service, and CCTV installed on every campus. Rooms are fitted with smoke alarms, and doors and windows with secure locks.

Your choices

At our central site in Wolverhampton you have the greatest choice: with economy, standard, and en-suite rooms available. At Walsall Campus you have a choice of standard or en-suite rooms, whilst our accommodation at Telford Campus is set in the grounds of the Grade II listed, 18th Century mansion Priorslee Hall, and offers en-suite rooms in a quiet environment. You can live in University accommodation throughout your time at University if you wish.

A place of your own

Whichever campus and level of accommodation you choose; you’ll get your own bedroom that’s your personal space for both studying and relaxing. You’ll find all the furnishings and fittings you’d expect, from washbasin to wardrobe; and the shared kitchens are well-equipped with microwave, cooker, fridge-freezer, lockable cupboards for your food and a kettle – for that all-important welcoming cup of tea! In our en-suite accommodation at City and Walsall Campus there’s also a TV and sofa area, perfect for socializing with your flatmates.

Spread the cost of your accommodation fees – pay in 3 installments by Direct Debit.

Residential Assistants

All campuses have a team of Residential Assistants (RAs) that are here to help you if any problems arise during your stay. Each block will have a designated RA who’ll greet you with a warm welcome when you move in to accommodation. RAs are returning students that have lived in the accommodation previously so will know what to do in almost every situation.

Helping you settle in

As well as your residential welcome event on the day you move in, Accommodation Services run trips for students living in University accommodation, including shopping trips to Ikea, Manchester and Birmingham’s famous Frankfurt Christmas Market.

Getting from A to B

All University accommodation is in walking distance of its campus. Our inter-campus shuttle bus services means you can get around from early morning until late at night, all for free! If you’re a cyclist, you can store your bike securely and for free on City and Walsall Campuses, and if you’re driving, you’ll find limited free parking on all campuses.
