At the moment we do not anticipate being able to offer a room in UEA residences to Erasmus students starting courses in January.  However, Spring Erasmus students will be prioritised for Homestay accommodation which would be an option for the opportunity to live with a local person/family in a house or flat in Norwich.  Erasmus students will be prioritised for our Homestay accommodation on a first come, first served basis. If you have any queries regarding Homestay, please email:

If you would prefer to search for private accommodation, please contact Homerun.
