Students socialise outside accommodation at University Centre Bishop Burton

Student Accommodation at University Centre Bishop Burton

University Centre Bishop Burton (UCBB) will be your home from home.

Living in UCBB's student village is a great way to meet people. It also means you’re only ever minutes away from your lectures, social events and our sports facilities.

You can choose either self-catered or half-board halls, both of which give you access to:

  • Ensuite bathroom
  • Free parking
  • Free WiFi
  • Free gym membership
  • Laundry facilities, which you can pay for with an app
  • Shared kitchen with a fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave, whichever room you choose.

If you opt for our self-catered halls, you’ll also have access to a full oven and a hob.

If you choose half-board, you’ll get £1,000 food card included in the cost to spend within our catering outlets. Perfect if you don’t fancy cooking every day!

Our accommodation is rated Outstanding by Ofsted and we want you to feel as happy and safe as possible whilst you’re living with us. We have 24-hour security on campus and access to the halls is by swipe card or key only. We also have CCTV in operation across the site, which covers the front doors of our halls of residence.

Please note that the room and kitchen style varies depending on the accommodation type.
