The University has a limited number of self-contained flats for students with partners and families and so demand for these can be high. Please contact the accommodation office as soon as you know your arrival date into Belfast to discuss your requirements for accommodation. We recommend that you come to Belfast by yourself at first until you find suitable accommodation for your family. Once you have found an appropriate place for you and your family to live, they can then join you in Northern Ireland. This is especially important if you have small children, as this can be a difficult time and accommodation in hotels can be expensive.
