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/s...estfield-court
Courtyard - https://www.hull.ac.uk/choose-hull/s.../the-courtyard
Taylor Cour t- https://www.hull.ac.uk/choose-hull/s...n/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/s...n/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/s.../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

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/s...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

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/s.../accommodation

Hope this helps
