Student Accommodation in Hatfield

Written by Sam | March 5, 2021

Hatfield is home to the University of Hertfordshire. They have a campus in Hatfield which is just north of London. The university has around 18,000 full time student (Times Higher Education) and has grown vastly since the early 2000’s.

The university is predominantly known for it’s engineering due to it’s location and having a Formula 1 team based in Hertfordshire. It has also expanded into the arts has become successful in that area!

The university has several campuses, most of which are in Hatfield and one that is based to the east of Hatfield. If you are based in Hatfield, student accommodation isn’t too bad because you have options, however, if you are based at the Bayfordbury Campus then it is unlikely that you will want to live in student accommodation in Hatfield! As an idea, here is a picture below:

Private Student Accommodation in Hatfield

In this section I like to look at what student accommodation there is in Hatfield that isn’t owned or managed by the university. This type of student accommodation can come with a lot of added extra, some of these extras can be:

  • Accommodation manager
  • Bill included
  • En-suites in flats
  • Free breakfasts
  • Bikes to use
  • Study, gym and cinema rooms
  • Social events

There is far more than what is on that list and not all the accommodations provide everything on the list. Most of the time it will depend on what space they have.

The only downside to this type of student accommodation is that it can be expensive. However, as a student, that is up to you!

Majority of the student accommodation in Hatfield is university owned or managed, there are only a few private providers of student accommodation. However, all the accommodation is based around the town centre, you have good access to the train station and the A1 is the main road going from North to South in the UK.

Everything is within walking distance and if you have a bike, you will be able to get around even quicker!
