LSBU has four halls of residence offering comfortable self-catering, en suite and standard rooms
Included with residences
Our residence fees are fully inclusive and cover the cost of all utilities, including hot water, heating and lighting. Insurance for basic possessions is also included. Further information on what is covered can be found at the Endsleigh Insurance website or by contacting our Accommodation Service.
Please note that in some cases the accommodation agreement may be longer than the academic teaching period.
What's not included
We do not provide bed linen, towels, cooking utensils (pans etc), plates or knives and forks. You can bring these with you, buy them locally or shop online for essential items through UniKitOut. Their online shop offers 'essentials' packs with bedding, towels, crockery and cooking utensils delivered to your halls before you arrive.

You’ll need to pay the first instalment of your residence fees before or when you arrive at your accommodation. You can pay online, via a bank transfer or in person. Find out more about residence fee payments in the Accommodation section of the student portal MyLSBU.
If you have a Student Loan you will be required to make a minimum payment of six weeks residence fees on or before the start of the Accommodation Agreement, with the balance due when you receive your Student Loan.
