Living on campus
When you’re at university your room is your space to call home, and where you live can play an important role in making new friends. There are a lot of benefits to living on campus at the RAU. You’ll get to know the university, have your lectures on your doorstep, and be right in the heart of the action.
Welcome to the on-campus student accommodation
We have a mixture of catered and self-catered accommodation with the half board option as standard, however you have the opportunity to upgrade to a fully catered package. The bedrooms are a mixture of standard rooms with shared bathroom facilities, en-suite rooms and twins, and we offer quiet bedrooms for students who prefer a more tranquil environment. Have a look at the halls of residence guide for more details about our halls of residence and the accommodation each of them has to offer.
Your room will not just be a place to study and sleep, it will be your space to call home and the location will play a key part of meeting new people and making new friends.
Living on campus is a great way to meet fellow students and to be where the action is, and comes with many benefits such as:
- With welfare and pastoral support from tutors, the student support services manager, accommodation officer, student team advice representatives (STARS), and university nurse. There is always someone on hand in the case of an emergency.
- Security on campus to keep you and your belongings safe.
- Free internet access in all rooms on our main campus.
- You are close to all campus services. The Tithe Barn and bar, The Restaurant, two cafes, library, sports facilities, launderette and university shop.
