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.
We have two student residences available: Endeavour Court and Rialto Court. Conveniently located on Queen’s Campus and dedicated to International Study Centre students, both options provide a safe and welcoming home just a short walk from your classes. Alternatively, you can arrange private accommodation independently (over 18s only).
Choose our catering package and enjoy freshly prepared, nutritious meals while you are studying with us. The package includes breakfast and an evening meal every weekday during term-time. Meals are served in the Waterside student restaurant on Queen’s Campus.
Catering package costs
The catering package is paid for by term, in advance.
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.
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.

If you require support in sourcing accommodation, please contact us via DurhamISC.CSS@studygroup.com to enquire about our current available accommodation options.
We have a good supportive friend group, where we all live together in the same accommodation, so it is easier for us. If you need to go on the bus together, we all support each other basically, from the accommodation and in class as well.
