    There's a number of university owned off campus and on campus accommodation at the University of Chester. There's also a third party off campus accommodation, and that is owned by obviously other companies, not not the University of Chester. Students tend to live in these types of accommodation for their first year. And then for the second and third year of their undergraduate courses, they would rent maybe a private house with friends that they've met on their course. But obviously, this this isn't something that you definitely need to do.

    Hi, guys, Selma from Coventry University, London. Accommodation is a huge thing here in the UK and yes, indeed you can live off campus. We don't mandate that you live on the campus in your first year, although many students prefer this because often it's more affordable. You don't need to commute. And it's a great way of making friends. You can reach out to your accommodation department at the university that you're studying and they will definitely guide you through this process.
