As a postgraduate student, you can apply for on campus accommodation. Find out more about your options and the application process here.
If you’d prefer to live in the private sector, or want to check out all of your options, then you are also welcome to view the Home Run housing list (see 'where to look' below), message board and uea(su) housing group on Facebook.
Some landlords/agents advertising via Home Run may state that they are looking for postgraduate tenants. This may happen where spare rooms are advertised and the current tenants have specified that they would like to live with other postgraduate students.
If you would also like to live with other postgraduates and an advert is not specific about the current tenants (if included, these details will be found in the property description) then it will be necessary for you to request further information from the landlord/agent.
The housing list search function also includes a ‘Student Type’ filter and postgraduates is one of the available options.
The message board is also split into different topics, some of which are for postgraduates only.
We do not have any specific postgraduate housing events at the moment but all students are welcome to attend our events. These are listed on the events calendar here.
UEA has a very limited supply of accommodation which is suitable for those with up to two children. To check availability and to request further information, contact UEA Accommodation Office by email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
If you’re looking for family accommodation then it is quite likely that you’ll need to search in the private sector.
Home Run (see ‘where to look’ below) does not have a specific allocation of family housing but landlords/agents may indicate that they are happy to rent to students who have family joining them in Norwich for their time at UEA. These properties can be identified by selecting ‘Family’ from the ‘Student Type’ filter on the property search.
As most student property rents are calculated per person or per bedroom, it may be preferable to look outside of the student market where rents are normally calculated for the whole property. You may wish to start your search via one of the accommodation search platforms online which bring together properties in the local area which are offered by local letting agents. Please note, in most cases, the properties advertised via these platforms are not affiliated with UEA or UEA Students' Union.
