The University of Hull boasts a selection of accommodation choices in both its Hull and Scarborough campuses, featuring a choice of University and privately-owned properties. Students studying on the Hull campus are housed either in traditional “self-catering” residence halls or in 5- to 10-person student houses that are owned by the university. Students attending the Scarborough campus live in student residences or choose from a variety of off-campus options, including furnished rooms or flats in the seaside town. Accommodations staff offer assistance and advice to help students find suitable housing. Activities are also offered on both campuses, such as sporting events, discos, films, variety and cabaret acts, and concerts.
