    Sorry. None in the UK do as far as I'm aware. As said, though, you shouldn't worry and simply join the LGBT society on arrival.
    Thanks. I'll keep an eye out for it on applications though.

    You'll not find accommodation specifically designated for LGBT students at universities in the UK, however if you feel strongly that would prefer to live with other LGBT people I suggest finding a flatshare privately, there are many websites out there that can help you to do this, for example gayshare.co.uk, gumtree etc.

    You could try and live with LGBT members in the second year or something, because they are your friends, not because they are gay. I mean you're practically meeting discrimination with discrimination.

    Not that I know of and quite frankly that would be the worst way to go!

    If we really want to live in a society that houses people who tolerate the lifestyles and views of others we should not put them in different areas.
    Imagine that? We'd have to end up having different sections for religions, ethnicities, sexualities, genders etc.

    I'm sure at University everybody should be grown up enough to be able to live with people who are different to themselves, accept them, and get on with them?

    The thread starter asked a simple questions which really only required a simple answer, I don't think he was looking for a debate. Unfortunately homophobia isn't as uncommon as what you might expect at university. I do not we should be critical of BenjiButton for asking as he is right to have some concerns, after all they are moving to a new country and culture.

    When applying for accom. at Birmingham uni one of the questions was something along the lines of - do you want to live in / apply for LGBT accom (as in a flat comprised of all LGBT members).
    So, yes I suppose it does - at least in Brum. (it mentioned it was something to do with they 'found that students wanted this/in a recent survey' or something haha

    You should not however, let this affect your decision on where to go to university.
