Student accommodation

Your accommodation options

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 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’re are allocated, you will find a safe and welcoming home.

Alternatively, you can arrange private accommodation independently (over 18s only).

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.

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.

Guaranteed accommodation

All students are guaranteed accommodation as long as they have received their Confirmation Letter from Admissions by midday UK time on 26th July 2019 and applied for accommodation using the provided instructions by midday UK time on the 31st July 2019.
