Still want to apply for University Accommodation?

It is not too late to apply for CCCU Accommodation and there are plenty of reason why it makes sense:

  • It is a great way to make friends and meet new people – with many featuring communal living and dining areas. They say you will make friends for life at University but being Uni housemates is friendship on whole different level!
  • There is lots of choice with different types of accommodation – so you can find the place that best suits you.
  • Location, Location, Location – most of our accommodation is close to or within walking distance of our campuses.
  • Lots of support every step of the way – University Accommodation is an opportunity to move away from home and ease yourself into independent living. Our Student Accommodation Champions are there to help signpost you to any support you need, give advice and help you settle in.
  • All your bills are included, plus high-speed wireless and free contents insurance. Psssst – there’s no Council Tax worries either! All this makes budgeting so much easier J

Which Accommodation is right for you?

When deciding which Accommodation you would like to choose think of the following things:

  • Budget – do you know what your Student Loan will cover? What budget do you think you can afford?
  • Location – do you want to be right next to the Library for those late night study sessions or do you prefer a little walk so you feel you are living as part of the City.
  • Facilities – how important is an ensuite to you?  Most think this is a must have but those students who share houses find actually it was not as important as they first thought and the opportunity for communal living was really fun.
