University of Hull Accommodation 2021

Many students who have applied to University may have questions surrounding accommodation and what is available to you as a student at the University of Hull. Hopefully, this thread will answer some potential questions which you as an applicant may have.

What different types of accommodation are available to me?

There’s a great range of accommodation options for you to choose from at Hull. There is the choice to live both on campus and off throughout the duration of your studies.

The three main on-campus accommodation blocks are as follows:
Westfield - https://www.hull.ac.uk/choose-hull/student-life/accommodation/westfield-court
Courtyard - https://www.hull.ac.uk/choose-hull/student-life/accommodation/the-courtyard
Taylor Cour t- https://www.hull.ac.uk/choose-hull/student-life/accommodation/taylor-court

There is a variety of shared bathroom based rooms, En-Suite accommodation, studio and 1-bed flats.

There is also accommodation available off-campus although these are offered by companies separate from the University of Hull.

What facilities are available to me in on-campus accommodations?

On-campus accommodation includes launderette facilities which means that you can wash required items either in the washing machines within the flat (Taylor Court) or within the launderette spaces (Westfield Court & The Courtyard).
Westfield Court has additional facilities such as a Study Space, a games room, and much much more.
The Courtyard has additional facilities such as a games room, a multi-function room complete with a large screen projector and much more.

What is the best type of accommodation for a first-year?

As a student, I would highly recommend that first-year students stay in Halls as it is a great way to meet a variety of people and make new friends. As there is a variety of different types of accommodation available there is hopefully something that can cater to individuals needs/ requirements from the accommodation which you pick to stay in.
6 of the individuals who I lived with in Halls during my first year, I ended up moving in with in my second and third year at University, and they remain some of my closest friends to this day.

How do I apply for accommodation?

For new students, if you have made Hull your Firm choice with UCAS you can now apply for your accommodation.
If you’ve selected Hull as your insurance choice with UCAS, you can now register an expression of interest in our accommodation.
Further information is available on the website - https://www.hull.ac.uk/choose-hull/student-life/accommodation/how-to-apply

If you have any questions for the accommodation team, you can email them - [email protected] , Telephone them (0)1482466042
Or you can contact a member of staff via Live Chat which is available on the website - https://www.hull.ac.uk/choose-hull/student-life/accommodation

If you have applied for your accommodation, it would be great to hear which accommodation you have applied to or if you have any questions please feel free to ask :smile:

Nigerian Students for September 21 intake is yet to get CAS ... Why?? Most are already choosing other schools due to this delay and errors in communication

Hi @Winyjoe

Once you receive an offer from the University of Hull, you will need to confirm your acceptance of the offer. The details that you provide will then be used to generate your Confirmation of Acceptance for Studies (CAS) statement that you need for your visa application. Before the University of Hull can issue you with a CAS number, you must meet all of the conditions of your offer. Further details about the process are available on our website - https://www.hull.ac.uk/choose-hull/study-at-hull/international/visas-and-immigration/outside-uk-new-student

I would advise emailing [email protected] and the team will be able to offer advice on the progress and help to resolve any issues which there may be. You can also raise an enquiry via the MyHull portal

Hi @steinom

We look forward to welcoming you to our campus :smile:

Some of our student ambassadors who are part of our Ask a Student scheme have lived on-site in accommodation.
The following ambassadors are available to chat too, to ask about their experience of living in the on-site accommodation:
Aimee (BSc Biomedical Science)
Rebecca (BA Chinese Studies)
Claudio (BSc Biology)
Although any of our other ambassadors will also be able to give you an insight into accommodation.
https://www.hull.ac.uk/study/ask-a-student

If you have not done so already, I would recommend looking at the virtual accommodation tours - https://www.hull.ac.uk/choose-hull/student-life/accommodation

Hope this helps

Hi Aaliyah-22, amazing to know you are joining us at Hull! Fingers crossed that you are able to find your flat mates (if you do not have any luck on TSR, social media groups are how I found my flat mates (although we can't specifically link or recommend any particular ones)). If you have any questions about Hull, the Uni, accommodation or moving out feel free to give us a shout! Good luck!

Hi Alliyah, My daughter is coming to Hull from Sept to study medicine and will be looking for female only accomodation in westfield court. We are going over to view this week. I'll see if there's availability in these sets of flats.

Hi Sohaill17, how exciting! I am unsure how far you are travelling to visit, though if it is 70+ miles be sure to ask about the University's travel grant which can help to cover your travel costs. If you or your daughter have any further questions that you think of prior to or after your visit please feel free to give us a shout too!

Does anyone have a packing list?! I'm not sure what kitchen things I'll need or if some things are provided.

Does anyone have a packing list?! I'm not sure what kitchen things I'll need or if some things are provided.

We stayed overnight in The Courtyard on the Offer Holders Open Day in Aug. The kitchen had a lot of cupboards so guess students get quite a few each. It had 1 or 2 kettles and toasters (can't remember if 1 or 2 of each) and cleaning cupboard with hoover, mop and bucket and iron + ironing board). It depends on your cooking skills and what you plan to do for meals. Things you may want / need to bring (as many as you think you need quantity wise ) -

Plates, dishes, mugs, glasses cutlery, cooking utensils, pans, teatowels, kitchen knives, tin opener/cork screw, chopping board, cheese grater, baking tray/pizza tray/chip tray, plastic takeaway storage boxes, oven gloves. Then stuff like washing up liquid, dishcloth/sponges, cling wraps. foil etc.

I have a list of other things for room / bathroom if you want it.

(BTW I am a parent and have used TSR to get info and answer to questions that I/we haven't been able to find out as had limited access to Open Days or asking questions like this. Sorry students, I have been lurking!)

Room list -
Coat hangers, 2 x bedding set (the beds in The Courtyard are 3/4 so 4ft wide not 4ft6) Mattress topper (the beds were uncomfortable when we stayed), mattress protector cover, clothes airer (X-frame one), a bin (there is one provided for trash so could use this for recycling), laundry bag and/or basket, over radiator airer (optional - but not sure of width of the room radiator), bedside light. Plenty of plugs but may need extension 4 way, pillows and duvet, extra pillows / throw or blanket to make it comfortable). Do not bring / use candles or reed diffusers.

Bathroom -
Towels (2 x sets), bath mat, there is a shower caddy but may want own / larger one. Over door hook for towel (optional as there is a rail and hook in bathroom), wash kit, hair dryer / straighteners / shaver etc. There is a white shower curtain and a small clear screen in the shower (this set up makes the shower curtain stick to you when you use the shower as it seems to be drawn towards the wall, there is a skill to make it not stick to you!)

Stationery / desk stuff, First aid kit, cleaning kit (you clean your own bathroom + bedroom), Face masks reusable/one use - to be worn in buildings (see welcome info), laundry detergent (not sure what we need until we go as didn't look in laundry), laptop etc

Paperwork - rent agreement for hall, ID / Passport/driving licence, Student finance info, meds / NHS no. to register at GPs across the road from campus (do this online when moved in)
