Living in Gloucester as a student

Gloucester is a city in the west of England and has a campus belonging to the University of Gloucestershire, which welcomes over 12,000 students each year across its three campuses. The area has a thriving student community with many academic and social opportunities. Students make up a large part of the city’s population meaning it does have a very successful accommodation provision. There are numerous halls of residence in the city, which include properties owned by the university and privately owned halls of residence. The university offers self-catered halls either on or near campus and attended by the university bus service.

Private halls in Gloucester provide students with a good range of options, including private en-suite apartments with great on-site facilities. Aside from halls of residence the city has a good range of other accommodation options.

A house share is a popular choice amongst students of the University of Gloucestershire that want to move on from halls, but also with students who feel that halls are not for them. These are particularly popular with groups of 4 or more students. Additionally, flats and apartments in city centre locations are an excellent option for those that prefer a smaller place to live. This accommodation is managed through letting agents or by landlords who specialise in student accommodation and there are many in Gloucester that are university-approved.
