Huddersfield has some great accommodation for students
Our recommended accommodation provider offers rooms in halls of residence to all University of Huddersfield students, whether you’re a first year or a continuing student, so you can be sure that you'll have a safe and friendly place to live when you arrive here.
For details of Storthes Hall Park Student Village and Ashenhurst Student Houses, contact Digs Student.
For second and final year students - and first year students who want to 'do their own thing' and arrange alternative accommodation - there are lots of options in and around Huddersfield so you can find a place that's just right for you.
Barnsley has a mixture of local and non-local students. Our unique courses attract people from home and away – and you need somewhere to live. If you’re travelling from far and wide you’ll be pleased to know that you can pick the brains of those in the know (our local students) and find out the best bars and shops – it’s like having your own personal tour guide.

Barnsley landlords have really embraced the number of students who are moving to Barnsley and more and more of them are buying property to rent out to Barnsley students. Most are based in and around the town centre so you won’t have to set that alarm clock too early to get to your morning lectures. They all advertise on www.studentpad.co.uk
From terraced houses to apartments, you’ll find the type of thing you’re looking for. You can make applications for rooms even before you’ve been offered a place. In fact, the earlier the better. It’s one less thing to worry about. You rent a room and you’ll meet your new housemates in Freshers’ Week. How exciting. Have a look around when you visit an Open Day but make sure you call the landlord first so you’re not just squashing your face up against a window.
Barnsley students can also opt to live in Storthes Hall. It’s a 30 minute car journey from Storthes to UCB. It’s the perfect time to catch up with your mates or have a cheeky nap before lectures (as long as you’re not the driver), plus it keeps you dry and warm when the weather gets harsh. Although Storthes Hall can be a great place to catch up with friends, there is no direct bus service to Barnsley and it is very difficult to commute to University Campus Barnsley without your own car. Remember, if you do drive whilst at University, this is another cost you must factor into your budget and can eat away at the money you would usually spend on going out and enjoying yourself!
The University has no contractual or other relationship with private accommodation provider - please read the small print.
From 1 August 2013 University Campus Barnsley (UCB) will be managed by Barnsley College. UCB programmes commencing in September 2013 will continue to be validated by the University, and will lead to a University of Huddersfield award.
