Oxford Brookes offers accommodation for new and existing full-time students who wish to live in our halls and shared houses.

Unfortunately, part-time students are not eligible to live in university-managed or partnership accommodation.

Oxford Brookes University's Halls of Residence and Accommodation Services comply with The Student Accommodation Code of Practice. Further information on the code can be found on the SAC Website.
