The university doesn't have its own accommodation on offer, but has a dedicated team to help students find a place to live, with other students. A variety of options are available to suit students whether their accommodation needs are short or long term. The students association advertises an array of accommodation from halls of residence to private rental properties, and you can use the website to advertise your own spare room.
Halls of Residence
There are a variety of private halls of residence that you can apply for, many of which are modern and give you the chance to mix with other students who are studying elsewhere. A great way to expand your social circle!
A more private affair, you can find your own personal flat or house to rent, or share with others. More independent than halls of residence, it's perfect if you want your own space or would prefer sharing with a smaller group of people.
BPP University also advertises short-term accommodation for those studying short courses. From hotels for a few days to guest houses where you can stay for a few months, you can easily find accommodation close to your study centre of choice.
Open days take place regularly and are great ways to get a feel for what life is like at university. Meet with lecturers, tour the facilities and get to know other students to make an informed decision as to whether BPP University is the right choice for you.
As the university is situated all over the UK, and also offers online distance learning, BPP organises a range of handy webinars so you can see the university and participate in conversations with members of staff.
