Going to university may be the first time you have lived away from home and you might be new to the area. You may be feeling a little nervous and unsure of what you should consider when thinking about your accommodation needs.

At the University of Suffolk we will not tell you where to live; that choice is yours. To help you make an informed decision about where you wish to live, we can provide you with details about accommodation we recommend.

We offer both on-campus and off-campus accommodation to suit a range of requirements and budgets.

Living here

Studying in Suffolk offers something for everyone, with countryside, beaches and beautiful scenery, as well as plenty of bars, cafes and pubs to explore.

If students want the hustle and bustle of city life without the expense, they will love the convenience and location of Ipswich, the county town of Suffolk. It offers entertainment, architecture and the arts, whilst retaining a hint of its peaceful, Dickensian charm.

Just ten minutes from the main campus, students can visit Cardinal Park, which has a cinema and restaurants on site, as well as a nightclub that hosts regular student nights.

The University is just a 20-minute walk from the train station, making it easy to explore the county and further afield, with London only an hour's train ride away.
