Off Campus Student Affairs

Many students move off-campus during their time at University.

Here, you will find everything you need to know to help and support you as a member of your local community.

We've got plenty of advice and guidance on what it takes to be a good neighbour and how to get involved with your community. 

You'll also find information about crime prevention and staying safe as well as the all important helpful hints on house-hunting.

To keep up to date with what is going on off-campus, follow us on Twitter, or visit our blog
