Studying at UCW may mean moving away from home for the first time, so we offer a helpful accommodation service to take some of the stress out of moving out.
Whether you are coming from afar or already live locally and want to experience living with other students, there are lots of options for accommodation in Weston.
The properties featured on this page are not owned or managed by the Weston College Group.
Most are let through local agency Skylight Property.
The tenancy agreements for the rooms let through them run for 48 weeks a year, which is ideal for many students, and rent includes all bills.
The rooms cost between £95 and £120 per week, and if the property is left in the same condition as when a student moves in, they will receive £200 cashback at the end of their tenancy.
Many of our students also like renting through Skylight as they are a friendly team with an office in the town.
From September 2020, UCW students will also be able to live in brand new and purpose-built student accommodation at Parkside House, which is just a short walk from Knightstone Campus and the Winter Gardens.
The building will be a mix of bedrooms in shared flats, twodios and studios, with rent costing between £135 and £150 per week inclusive of bills.
Renting at Parkside House is on a 52 week a year basis, with the facilities including a gym and dance studio.
Please download this booklet about the property to find out more about the application process.

Warwick Court is our quiet halls, ideal for students who would prefer a relaxed place to live where they can study without interruption. It is split into flats for two or three students, each with their own bathrooms and kitchens.

Students with particular disabilities and those who would prefer a quiet environment will be prioritised to live in this property.
