Meet the team

Finding somewhere comfortable to live at an affordable price, while you undertake your studies, can be a daunting prospect. The Graduate Accommodation Team is here to help full-time graduate students find a suitable place to live in University-owned accommodation. We have a wide range of accommodation types, from standard student rooms to three bedroom houses, located at various sites around the City.

Colleges manage their own accommodation, so if you have a query regarding accommodation owned and managed by a specific College, please contact them directly at

The Graduate Accommodation Office is open Monday to Friday 9:00 - 17:00 with the addition of some busy weekends at the start of the academic year.

Graduate Accommodation Officers

The team of Graduate Accommodation Officers deal with the allocation of our accommodation and, in conjunction with the Caretakers, the management of our sites. They will guide you through the process of apply for accommodation, signing up for accommodation, moving in and then vacating.  They also have links with the wider University and Colleges so are a good source of knowledge.
