We offer some of best-value University-managed accommodation in the UK, located on campus or very close by. Be part of the University community and have the opportunity to participate in lots of extra activities organised by your hall such as sports and social events. It's a great way to quickly develop a network of friends and get involved in university life.
Types of accommodation
Our campus is a much safer environment than those in larger cities. For your assurance, uniformed security officers patrol the campus and monitor closed-circuit television all day, every day. You can also visit our security control room near to the library main entrance.
Accommodation for families
If you intend to bring dependents, you are strongly advised to make accommodation arrangements before travelling to the University. Please note: we do not have accommodation for families.
You can find an abundance of property in Middlesbrough's private sector - in traditional houses or in purpose-built halls of residence Our accommodation team can help you identify landlords to contact but it doesn't arrange this accommodation for you - your contract is directly with the landlord, not with the University.
If you want to look for a place to live after you arrive, or if you make a late application, you may need to book temporary accommodation in the area for your first few nights. If you check the internet for hotels and guest houses in Middlesbrough this will bring up a range of different options for you.
Where to live while you study here
Living close to the University will greatly benefit your studies and your student experience. We recommend that you choose to live in Middlesbrough, or as nearby as possible. Some cities in the North East of England, like Leeds and Newcastle, are up to two hours travelling time away from the University campus. We do not recommend you live as far away as that during your studies at Teesside University.
