10 Reasons why you should live in student accommodation

Living in student accommodation has many benefits: a great social life, gives you independence, a safe and secure environment as well as contributing positively to your studies.

Read on to find out why you should consider living on campus!

Helping U to feel at home

Our busy social calendar makes it easier for you to meet new people and feel at home more quickly.
From trips to Ikea to get bits and pieces for your room, organised nights out and block wars, there’s always loads going on. Check out the activities for yourself! (Scroll down to the bottom of the page in the link for upcoming events!)


Supporting U 24/7

When you live on campus, our staff are there for you. From changing a lightbulb, recommending the
best local takeaway to advice on student wellbeing. What’s more, our Resident Assistants are current students.
They study here, live in our accommodation, so are best placed to offer support and advice.

Getting U online quickly

Being online is important, not only for studying, but for keeping in touch with family and friends!
It’s lucky you have high speed Wi-Fi included in your rent then isn’t it?

Keeping U safe

With 24/7 security, CCTV and control over who enters your flat, you can feel safe in the knowledge we do all we can
to keep you and your belongings safe and secure!  (You are provided with 1 key which gives you access to your block, flat and room!)

Helping U budget

With our all – inclusive bills you won’t get any nasty surprises and be out of pocket. Utilities, Wi-Fi and
housekeeping is all included!


Space for U

Often, private accommodation has few, if any, social spaces to get together with friends or for a change of scenery.
At Ulster, we have cinema rooms, student hubs, and outdoor spaces for BBQs or chilling with friends.

Keeping U close

If it was a toss-up between getting up early to catch public transport, to get stuck in traffic jams or an extra hour in bed,
I know which I’d choose!  All our accommodation is located a stone’s throw away from or adjacent to our 4 campuses.

Getting U better grades

Research has suggested that students staying in student accommodation achieve better academic outcomes.

A more independent U

University is all about independence. Learning (if you haven’t already) to wash your own clothes, cook and clean.
We do, however lend a hand, with our house keeping service, once per week.


Designed to suit U

We want you to be comfortable in your new surroundings. That’s why we offer a range of contemporary room types to suit your budget.
You can also opt to live with friends, in alcohol and noise free rooms or we can allocate you accommodation with others on your course.
