Study. Make friends. Socialise.

Norwich is one of the UK’s friendliest and most affordable cities – with a range of accommodation options for students to choose from to suit their budget and needs.

Ranked in the top 10 safest towns and cities for students by, Norwich blends of cosmopolitan contemporary life and striking heritage.

The cost of living in Norwich and the cost of accommodation are lower than in London – making NUA a more affordable destination to study.

Most students live within a short distance of our campus – choosing to cycle or walk to the university, keeping travel costs low and avoiding the need to commute.

Student accommodation for any budget

You will feel at home and well-catered for whatever your budget – from NUA’s high-specification halls of residence at All Saints Green in the heart of Norwich to Beechcroft just a short bus ride away. For September 2021, we’re planning to launch our brand new campus accommodation, Duke Street Riverside.

In September 2021, students will also be able to select Benedict’s Gate, in the Norwich Lanes. Students can also take advantage of independently managed, Crown Place.

In all university-managed accommodation, Norwich University of the Arts is fully compliant with the Universities UK/Guild HE Code of Practice for the Management of Student Housing.
