Student Orientation Week


On-campus accommodation is provided for over 700 students in halls of residence, five-bedroomed houses and apartments. All have shared self-catering facilities. A small number of mobility type flats are available for students with special needs. Approximately 220 purpose-designed apartments are also available close to the Jordanstown campus, at Whiteabbey, and these offer a greater degree of independence but are still convenient to the campus. All have telephone and internet connections.


There is on-campus accommodation in our Student Village development. The accommodation is provided in a mixed mode of five and six bedroom apartments. Most rooms have en-suite facilities whilst the remainder contains a good ratio of shared bathroom facilities. The en-suite rooms have a specialised telecommunications network for internal communication and access to the internet. There are some specially designed suites available for students with special or mobility needs. There is also a range of leased accommodation in Coleraine, Portrush and Portstewart, which the University allocates and manages in a similar way to its own accommodation, but which offer a greater degree of independent living.


There are over six hundred bed spaces on the Magee campus, a high proportion of which contain en-suite facilities. These bed spaces are configured in mostly six-bedroom flat design and have access to a telecommunications point via subscription to external provider. The remaining accommodation has a high ratio of shared facilities provided in traditional Halls of Residences style and five-bedroom apartments.


Although the University is currently unable to provide accommodation at its Belfast campus, Belfast students may apply in the normal way for accommodation at Jordanstown campus. Belfast Campus is only six miles from Jordanstown, however there are excellent transport options available. A Uni-Link Bus service runs daily throughout the day collecting and stopping at both campuses. There are also very good rail, bus and taxi links between the two campuses.
