Living in accommodation with other students is the best way to experience student life and will help you to settle-in, focus on your studies and make friends more easily.
There are three student residences: Endeavour Court, Infinity House and Rialto Court.
Endeavour Court and Infinity House are located on Queen’s Campus. Rialto Court is just a short walk away. Whichever residence your are allocated, you will find a safe and welcoming home.
Alternatively, you can arrange private accommodation independently (over 18s only).
If you are younger than 18 at the start of your programme, you will automatically be allocated a room in Endeavour Court. All under 18s will need to book our catering package for the first term, giving you the opportunity to settle in more easily and focus on your studies. After your first term, you can decide if you want to continue to have catered meals.
It is important to arrange your accommodation before you arrive in the UK. Not only will this give you peace of mind that you know where you will be staying, this will ensure that you have no difficulty confirming your course at immigration or police registration (if required).
The Central Student Support team will then contact you with information about the next steps you need to take to book your accommodation.

Please note, the accommodation options available may depend on your study start date. Once you have confirmed your place on the course – and have indicated on your application that you would like International Study Centre accommodation – we will contact you to advise you on the residences available to you.
