Live at home

You can save money, stay close to friends and relatives, look after your children or other family members, and still have an amazing experience while living at home.

Private rented accommodation

Opting for renting in the private sector is also an option during your studies. This option offers more independence, and is a popular one amongst students moving with their families and returning students who have previously lived in halls.
