Where to Rent Student Accommodation

Hull is one of the UK’s fastest growing student cities and there are plenty of activities to keep you busy. From live music at the new concert venue to shopping at the Prospect Shopping Centre, or spending the day at The Deep, you’ll find something to do in this historic port city. If you’re not a fan of shopping, there are plenty of pubs & bars and nightclubs for you to choose from, or you can check out some theatre or opera at Hull New Theatre, Hull Truck Theatre and Hull Venue.

There are a wide variety of Hull student accommodation, from the renovated Edwardian and Victorian houses on streets in The Avenues, to the early 20th century buildings around Newland. You’ll also find plenty of modern student flats in the popular Kingswood area, which is close to a range of local amenities including shops and restaurants. There are also plenty of supermarkets within easy reach, and the Kingswood Retail Park is perfect for students who like to stock up on essentials.

The university is located around 3.8km from the city centre, and you’ll find student homes in a range of locations within easy walking distance of campus. Many students choose to live in the heart of the action on Cottingham Road, Newland Avenue or Princes Avenue – each location offers its own unique mix of cafes, bars and restaurants. For those who prefer a quieter student neighbourhood, you can still find a range of student houses in the Avenues and in the outskirts of the city, where there are plenty of bus routes that run to and from the centre.

If you’re looking for a bit of extra peace and quiet, you can explore Hull’s beautiful green spaces, with parks such as the Kingswood Golf Course, Victoria Park and Pearson Park offering scenic views and plenty of places to relax in the sun.

Almost all of the Hull student accommodation is offered on fixed contract lengths, with 43 and 52 week tenancies being most common in purpose built student accommodation and shared student rental houses respectively. However, a growing number of landlords are offering short-term student lets on flexible contracts, with the option to rent for just one term or semester if you prefer.

Moreover, student accommodation’s proximity to campus and academic resources plays a role in academic success. Living on or near campus can reduce commute times, allowing students to spend more time on studies, extracurricular activities, and building relationships with peers and faculty.
