Student accommodation

Your accommodation options

Living in accommodation with other students is the best way to experience student life in the UK and will help you to settle-in, focus on your studies and make friends more easily.

There are two student residences: Endeavour Court and Rialto Court.

Endeavour Court is located on Queen’s Campus whilst Rialto Court is just a short walk away. International Foundation Year students will be offered Endeavour Court first and Pre-Masters students will be located in Rialto Court. Whichever residence you are allocated, you will find a safe and welcoming home.

How to book your room

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).

  1. Request accommodation when you apply for the International Study Centre.
  2. Confirm your place at the International Study Centre.

The Central Student Support team will then contact you with information about the next steps you need to take to book your accommodation. If you applied directly through our online application form, your Student Enrolment Advisor will answer any questions you have about your accommodation options, the facilities offered and what you need to bring with you.

Catering package

For easy access to freshly prepared nutritious meals, book our catered package for your first term so that you can focus on settling in to your studies. The student restaurant is conveniently located on Queen’s Campus where you can socialise and eat your meals with other International Study Centre students.

If you are under the age of 18, catered accommodation is compulsory for your first term. Catering is optional for all other students, irrespective of which accommodation you are located in. Students who opt for the catering package must booked at the same time as accommodation and will be charged in advance for one full term. You can request catering either on your application form or by contacting the Central Student Support team*.

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.
