University of York


At the University of York, we are dedicated to providing you with a home away from home during your time here. You can look forward to a comfortable place to relax and socialise once you have finished your studies for the day. All student accommodation is located on or very near to the university campus.

Experience a student community

Life at the University of York takes place on our green, safe and friendly campus, where you can easily walk between your accommodation, lessons and other facilities within 10-15 minutes.

As a student at the University of York, you will be a member of one of nine colleges. The colleges will serve as your home if you choose to live on campus. The university offers a range of self-catered and catered accommodation. If you have a catered package, you will be served breakfast and an evening meal (Monday to Friday during term time) in your college's dining hall. Another option to think about would be ensuite or shared bathrooms. Just over half of the rooms available on campus have shared bathrooms, although every bedroom will also have its own wash basin. Ensuite accommodation will have its own bathroom containing a toilet, wash basin and shower.
