Queen’s Accommodation manage a range of self-contained apartments within easy walking distance of the University campus which are available for new staff members to rent.
As it is difficult to secure accommodation before you come to Belfast it can be useful to take University accommodation initially (if it is available) 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.
Accessing Staff Accommodation
If you wish to avail of this accommodation you should contact Accommodation at Queen’s immediately on acceptance of your offer of employment. The apartments are let, subject to availability and it is therefore important to contact Accommodation at the earliest opportunity to check availability. Should Queen’s not have an apartment available, staff will help you find accommodation in the private sector around the University area.
