Get help to find a flat or house nearby through Home Run.



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 or telephone +44 (0) 1603 592092.

Running late?
I’ve arrived late on campus – what do I do?


  1. Pack wisely

    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.

  2. 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.

  3. Get cooking!

    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.
