Information for LGBTQIA+ students

LGBTQIA+ accommodation

Our accommodation provides a welcoming environment for everyone. We value respect and tolerance for all.

We recognise that some students who identify as LGBTQIA+ would prefer to live with other LGBTQIA+ students.

We can offer the choice of a limited number of en-suite flats with this preference should you wish to select it.

If you are interested in this choice, please email the Accommodation team for more information.
