Student Accommodation in Norwich

Written by Sam | January 15, 2021

Norwich has a large university called, the University of East Anglia or UEA for short and Norwich University of the Arts. Norwich is a great place to live as a student, it is cheap, the transport in Norwich is good and you are surrounded by great beaches and natural beauty which you can visit at any time.

UEA is quite a big university, it has around 16,000 full-time students and has a great set up for its sports teams. At UEA there is only one main campus which makes everything easier because you don’t have to travel between campuses. See the picture below!

Private Student Accommodation in Campus

When you look at the amount of student accommodation in Norwich, for a 16,000 student (just at UEA) you would expect there to be a few more accommodations.

We are only looking at the purpose built student accommodation sector and not student housing.

The reason I suspect is that the university has a lot of student accommodation on its campus, which is where a lot of students want to live. Whichever the reason, there are some providers in Norwich and I have put them below for you to look at!

Student accommodation providers in Norwich are;

Student Housing in Norwich

If you are looking for student housing in Norwich then you will be glad to know that there is a lot of student housing all around the university and in the suburbs, however, one thing I would say is that you need to be careful not to get yourself in poor standard student housing.

In my opinion I would say the amount of good student housing is much less than other universities and this means there is more demand for it. There are some good quality providers and we will put some good recommendations below later.

Because the campus is very big, it does mean that transport to it is fairly good and that when living in different areas you can get transport in easily.

The average rent for a student in Norwich with bills included is £90-100 per week. This will change where you want to live and how fancy you want to go!

Best places to live as a student in Norwich are:

  • The Golden Triangle
  • Bowthorpe
  • City Centre
  • Eaton
  • North and West Earlham

These areas are based all around the university, the city centre will be the most expensive due to it’s location, however if you are wanting a house within a 10-15 minute walk of university then these are the best areas where most students tend to live.

Some good student housing providers in Norwich are:

There are more letting agents in Norwich, however, I feel these are the ones that give great design and service.

If you are looking for student housing in Norwich and want to make sure that you find somewhere that is good quality, reasonable pricing and isn’t going to be a bad experience, then here are some tips!

  • Always view- Look for quality
  • Research the letting agent and landlord
  • Speak to part or current tenants if you can
  • Read the tenancy and inventory
