A taste of UEA residencesRead It
UEA isn’t just an inspiring place to study, it’s also a great place to live. Just like our campus, student accommodation at UEA is designed to help you make the most of your time here.
Am I eligible for UEA accommodation?
International postgraduate research students whose course starts on 1 October are guaranteed a place in UEA accommodation. You just need to fill out the online application form by the deadline of July 31 2017.
Making your application
If you would like to be considered for a place in UEA accommodation, please complete the online application preference form.
Your room offer
Room offers will be sent once you hold an unconditional offer for a place to study at UEA.
Looking for a house in the private sector?
As well as our accommodation at UEA, you can also find great places to live in the local area. The Student Union at UEA run a service called Homerun, which can offer advice and provide assistance with finding a private house.
Collecting your keys
Unless advised otherwise, you will collect the keys to your UEA accommodation from the Accommodation Office which is located at Nelson Court 0.353. If you need to contact the Accommodation Office, please email firstname.lastname@example.org or telephone +44 (0) 1603 592092.
I’ve arrived late on campus – what do I do?
Think carefully about what you choose to bring with you, considering the space available and your needs. In particular, there are some items – for example, a kettle – which you might choose to purchase with your flatmates once you have arrived rather than bring your own. For more ideas about what (and what not) to bring, see our suggested packing list here.
If you are transporting your luggage separately, please arrange for it to arrive once you are on campus as there is no safe space for us to store luggage until you get here.
Meet your senior resident
Your Senior Resident is an older student who is responsible for the welfare of the flat. They will introduce themselves in the first week, and you should contact them if you have any issues within your flat.
UEA students have produced this amazing recipe book which gives you 70 pages of culinary ideas specially written for the type of kitchen equipment you’ll find in your flat. Sharing a meal is a brilliant way to get to know your flatmates.
Norwich is a vibrant city with lots to offer, and there are many rental properties available close to the university. You can get help to find a flat or house through Home Run, the lettings agency run by the Students’ Union. You’ll find a list of accredited properties and landlords, as well as a message board to find housemates.
