Degree Level Accommodation at Riseholme College

Riseholme College will be your home from home.

Living at Riseholme College is a great way to meet new people.

It also means you’re only ever minutes away from your lectures, social events and our sports facilities. Our half-board halls 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.

As you'll be half-board, you’ll get £1,000 food card included in the cost to spend at our cafe. Perfect if you don’t fancy cooking every day!

We want you to feel as happy and safe as possible whilst you’re living with us, so 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.

"Living at the Riseholme campus is fun. You gain a lot of independence because you’re living away from home, but you’ve still got the support there from the wardens."
