UK University Accomodation

Thursday, April 3, 2003
This time we check out some university accommodation in the UK … what a find!

Last year Getaway did some stories on inexpensive stays in university and college accommodation during their holiday breaks. We were absolutely inundated with requests for fact sheets and the website almost went into meltdown. We hope all of you who stayed somewhere we suggested found everything to your liking.

With the interest in local campus accommodation, we decided to do some work and find out if there was anything on offer in the UK, a place which can be quite expensive if you are staying in hotels.

Well, here is the good news. There are loads of universities and colleges across the United Kingdom which open their doors to the general public during semester holidays.

Most rooms are singles and are available from June to September. In some cases you can have a room over Christmas and Easter breaks.

They fill up fairly quickly and now that we have spilled the beans, you can be sure they will fill more quickly! Venue Masters have access to more than 100 universities and colleges in the UK.

To find out more, log onto or call them on 0011 44 114 249 3090. Their fax number is 0011 44 114 249 3091. You can also e-mail them on
