Housing/Accommodations
If you're looking for accommodation with a bit more of a family feel, they have a small number of Worcester families who let rooms to students.
The University works closely with private landlords and Worcester City Council to ensure all student shared houses are accredited and offer good standards.
For independence, Worcester has plenty of good, reasonably priced accommodations, houses or flats, which is close to the University. As a student off campus you still have access to the same facilities as students living on campus, including the support of the Accommodation Team and Student Experience Team to help you with any queries that might arise.
