I'm specifically looking at unis that offer undergraduate Medicine in England and Wales and I've already made a bit of a compilation but this is something that isn't easy to do via Google Search (For the University of B'ham especially I found out through an obscure FAQ drop down that wasn't from a G search but just general browsing)

Manchester "Provision for special requirements" - Lifestyle moderated halls and can request to live in halls with less alcohol, parties or noise.

Bristol - Durdham Hall, New Bridewell and Richmond Terrace have alcohol free flats

Exeter - simple alcohol free accommodation.

Nottingham has quiet hall accommodation with alcohol free study and social areas

Birmingham - maybe alcohol free environment in parts of Ashcroft and Jarratt Hall

Plymouth - offer alcohol free accommodation

Edge Hill - offer alcohol free rooms

Southampton - alcohol free accommodation

I'd also like to ask as a follow up question about whether the alcohol free accommodation at the sorts of unis I've specified above is also single sex because I get that if you are looking for a niche requirement/favourable setting then it's gonna be even less likely that it intersects with another factor.

Some universities will not list alcohol-free accommodations instead what they do is ask you if you have specific requirements that need to be met such as alcohol-free and girls only. They match you up with flatmates really well from what I have seen (friends on my course). By 2nd year you can move into a house/flat with girls only that do not drink.

I recommend using TSR to chat to university representatives and ask them how they can accommodate your needs or email the university directly.

Thanks for the response!

I'm definitely more at the elimination stage of which unis I wanna pick so I am asking this question at the accommodation talks on virtual open days in order to help whittle down which unis I apply to but if it gets to the point where I have already submitted my UCAS application and one of the 4 unis is one where I don't already know/have not asked I will make sure to chat to university representatives about this! It's not a massive dealbreaker because tbh I just wanna study Medicine but obviously while I'm gonna focus on applying to universities that will accept me because Medicine admissions is brutal, I still wanna factor in lifestyle and how student life will be.

Also, btw I'm actually a male so girls only would be the opposite of what I want but that did make me laugh!

Hahaha, didn't know you were a guy. I had a 50/50 chance of getting it right based on your profile name...
