A place to call home


January 2023 entry: 

BU accommodation for January starters is now FULLY BOOKED. If you still require accommodation, you will need to look in the private sector and we have lots of advice on our Private rental accommodation webpage to help you with your search. 

We may have occasional cancellations in BU accommodation in the next couple of weeks, so please check back on the Accommodation Portal to see if any rooms have become available.

You can view our January accommodation price guide 2023/24 (pdf 153kb) and read more information on our How to book accommodation webpage.

September 2023 entry:

The online accommodation portal will open on Tuesday 29 November 2022 for Stage 1 of the booking process. You can view your accommodation options or read more information on our How to book accommodation webpage.

Pricing: Some of our undergraduate pocket prospectuses for September 2023 entry incorrectly state our accommodation rent prices are per month, when they are per week. You can view all correct, weekly rates on our accommodation listing page and in our accommodation price guide (pdf 117kb). We apologise for any inconvenience caused.
