DIGS Accommodation Guarantee

There’s room for everyone in Huddersfield and there is some excellent student accommodation. Book with our preferred, recommended and approved accommodation provider, DIGS Student, and be guaranteed a room in halls of residence if you have made us your first choice and match one of the below criteria:

  • UK, EU, or International student. 
  • Undergraduate or Postgraduate student.  
  • Part time or full-time student.  
  • Study Abroad exchange student from an institution outside of Europe arriving in September. 
  • Study Abroad non-exchange student from an institution anywhere in the world arriving in September.
