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.
If you would like to be considered for a place in UEA accommodation, please complete the online application preference form.
All undergraduate students should complete the online registration before they arrive 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.
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.
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.
When you arrive at UEA you will need to collect your key and register for your course.
Where to collect your key
If your arrival date is between Wednesday 19 September and Sunday 23 September, your registration and key collection will take place in UEA Sportspark.
If your arrival date is before 19 September, key collection information will be included in your room offer email.
We have a number of arrival events throughout the arrivals week. If you are unsure which date to arrive, please check your room offer email or contact us. If you would like to arrive before your designated arrival date, you will need to arrange temporary hotel or B&B accommodation.
19 and 20 September: EU and International arrivals
Key collection from 10.00am until midnight. After midnight until 3.00am, keys can be collected from the Lodge
22 and 23 September: UK arrivals
Key collection from 10.00am until 6.00pm. After 6.00pm accommodation keys can be collected from the Lodge
We would advise arriving during the advertised key collection times as we have a large amount of support available to you. If it is not possible to arrive during these times, you will still be able to collect your key.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. There are also many shops in Norwich in case you forget anything. For more ideas about what (and what not) to bring, see our suggested packing list here.
Meet your Warden
Your Warden 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.
