Accessing Accommodation

Queen’s Accommodation manage a range of self-contained apartments and houses within easy walking distance of the University campus.

The properties are let, subject to availability, for up to 12 months to support new Queen's staff settling into Belfast. Rents include some utilities and 24/7 maintenance support, which makes them very competitively priced compared to the private sector.

As it is difficult to secure accommodation before you come to Belfast it can be useful to take University accommodation initially and seek accommodation from there. This also allows the University to provide a tenant reference for you which can significantly reduce the amount required as deposit on rental accommodation. Having accommodation organised may also ease other elements of your relocation process, such as setting up a bank account.

If you wish to avail of staff accommodation you should contact Accommodation immediately following your offer of employment to check availability. If Queen's accommodation is not available to suit your requirements or arrival date, staff may help you find accommodation in the private sector in the University area.
