Nursing and healthcare students

Accommodation that suits your timetable

Helping you concentrate on your studies

Students on healthcare courses can experience difficulties when sharing flats with students on non-healthcare courses because of their differing timetable, workloads and shift patterns. We want your accommodation to be the perfect place for you to live and rest to enable you to concentrate on your studies to the best of your ability. 

Therefore we strongly recommend that new healthcare students live in dedicated flats within Marybone 3, Glassworks or Atlantic Point (AP). There are also a limited number of cheaper rooms in shared bathroom flats within Marybone 1. This recommendation applies to new students on all branches of Nursing (Adult, Child and Mental Health) plus Midwifery and Paramedic Science.

​Search for accommodation

The main advantages to living in dedicated flats in these Halls are as follows:

  • All bedrooms have en-suite bathrooms (except Marybone 1) and small double beds
  • They are among the closest accommodation options to the Tithebarn Street Building and the adjacent Library
  • You will only share your flat with students on similar courses

Nursing and Midwifery students are given an all year round tenancy at a lower weekly rate than that published on our website. However if they require a shorter, 42 week tenancy at the published rent, this is also available. 

Paramedic students are given a 42 week tenancy to reflect their teaching calendar but they can request an annual tenancy.

There are also a limited number of flats available in Marybone 1 for healthcare students. These typically have six bedrooms and two bathrooms each, which is reflected in a weekly rent of £89 per week for 42 weeks or £85 per week for the annual tenancy in 2020/21. All bedrooms in Marybone 1 have small double beds and sinks in the rooms.

There is no parking at Marybone or Glassworks and therefore Paramedic Science students who need to bring their car should chose AP instead. A parking space at AP will cost £15 per week in 2020/21.

The tenancy and teaching starting dates for 2020/21 are now confirmed as follows:

Please note that although healthcare students are free to choose where to live, no guarantee can be made about sharing a flat with students on similar courses at any other location. Furthermore it will not be possible to move into the Halls listed above after the start of the academic year, should any problems emerge.
