We have two main options available for these shorter lets which are at Parham Road and Petros Court. Accommodation is not guaranteed, and is allocated in date order, so please apply as early as possible once you get your CCCU student number.

We may be able to extend your rental period by a week either side of your studies, subject to you paying the extra charge and having valid time on your visa, if applicable. This gives a great opportunity for you to settle in before starting your studies, and also to explore the local area (we are less than 1 hour to London on the fast train.)

If you wish to do this, please contact us in advance of any variation to start and end dates. If you turn up early and do not tell us, we cannot guarantee any accommodation will be ready for you.

How to Apply

You usually need to start applying around 2-4 months before you are due to arrive. We regularly update this page so you will be able to see clearly when you can apply.

We allocate in date order, so the earlier you apply the more likely it is that we can offer you accommodation.

When we email the link to your offer, to confirm your place you will need to pay a £50 pre-payment fee towards your rent.

Minimum booking periods are two weeks.
