London is only 2 hours away by train or car - trains to London depart every 30 minutes, and Norwich International Airport is only 15 minutes from the city centre and has links worldwide via four daily flights to Amsterdam.
Our award-winning on-campus accommodation sits mere minutes from our impressive teaching and research facilities on a vibrant campus akin to an internationally diverse city with shops, music venues, art galleries, libraries, cafés and many others. We provide great value, quality accommodation as rated across the UK's top 30 universities, a typical residence providing fully furnished, centrally heated, single or twin-bedded rooms grouped round a shared kitchen. All the accommodation is self-catering, but if you feel like a change from cooking for yourself, there are plenty of places to eat and drink on campus. All study rooms are connected to the University computer network for free and fast access to the internet.
Norwich is a safe and beautiful place to live. With a huge private rental market offering great value properties all over the city, there is sure to be the perfect place for you. UEA is here to help and advise even if you are living off-site and so please contact the Student Union Advice Centre for details of houses, flats, bedsits and lodgings available for rental in the private sector. The SUAC can also give you access to an online 'housing list', as well as offering general advice and information. However, it is your responsibility to deal directly with the agent or landlord when making accommodation arrangements.
