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.
