Moving away from home can be one of the biggest steps in student life. If you have decided to move into accommodation rather than live at home, you can choose to stay either in halls or private accommodation during your studies.
You can explore accommodation options around each campus, apply for halls, and find out all information on applying for private accommodation on UCA's accommodation page. It's also worth knowing that, if you’re a first-year student on an undergraduate course and you apply before the January UCAS deadline, UCA university will guarantee you a place to stay in your first year - whether that's in UCA halls or in other rented accommodation.
Living in halls offers a vibrant and communal experience, allowing you to immerse yourself in the student community and make lifelong friendships. On the other hand, private accommodation provides greater independence and flexibility, enabling you to tailor your living arrangements to your preferences. Remember, this choice is all about you and what makes you feel most comfortable and excited. Whichever path you choose, there's a world of opportunities waiting for you to explore, learn, and make the most out of your university days.
