Living on Campus

Edge Hill University provides more than 1,900 single study bedrooms in halls of residence, divided into six separate areas on campus, with a seventh section currently under construction.

Offering exceptional value for money, our range of accommodation provides a safe and supportive living environment. You’ll never be more than just a short walk from your subject facilities, lecture theatres and seminar rooms, the Students’ Union, the University library, IT resources, the Arts Centre, cafés, restaurants, laundry facilities and Edge Hill Sport.
