Second year and up students

Next year, stay in residence!

Upper year living style means having your own space. Stay on campus and have many useful resources at your disposal while living in a building more suited to the upper year student's needs.

As a full-time upper year student, you are welcome to stay on campus. You just need to apply. Applications and reservations are made in the Housing Portal, via uoZone.
