Here at Huddersfield we understand how important family support is for the success of our students. Families and friends can make a big difference to student success, providing emotional and practical support during their time at university.
Information for families and friends
The word 'family' might mean immediate family, but it doesn't have to – we just mean the group of people who care about and provide support for students outside the University.
Students increasingly choose to live at home when they take their undergraduate degree. Living at home allows students to save on accommodation costs and can provide a familiar and supportive environment for studying.
In fact, more than 50% of students at the University of Huddersfield live and travel from home to study. We recognise the importance of local students and pride ourselves on inspiring them to become tomorrow’s professionals.
