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).
If you are younger than 18 at the start of your programme, you will automatically be allocated a room in Endeavour Court.

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.
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*.
*Don’t forget to let us know if you have any food allergies or special dietary requirements so that we can make arrangements for you.
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.
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.
