Starting university means that you may be moving away from home for the first time. Apart from your course, where you choose to live will be one of the most important decisions you make.

A place to belong

We have more than 2,300 single study bedrooms in halls of residence. They offer excellent value for money, with a range of rooms available depending on your budget. As well as offering high-quality modern living, our accommodation provides a secure and supportive environment on the safest University campus in the North West (Complete University Guide 2022).

Making your application

When you make Edge Hill University your firm choice, you’ll receive an email from our Accommodation Team inviting you to apply for accommodation online. This will be emailed to the email address on your UCAS application and the deadline for application will be included in the email.

We offer a guaranteed place in our on-campus halls of residence to all new first year undergraduate UK students who make us their first choice by accepting a Conditional Firm or Unconditional Firm offer and who apply for accommodation before the deadline. This guarantee is for full-time students starting a programme in September 2022.
