All HYMS students are based at either Hull or York in their first two years.
The University of Hull offers many different types of accommodation, including catered halls of residence, self-catering on-campus flats, and self-catering university-owned student houses. A number of residences are specially adapted for students with disabilities. Prices range from £69 per week for a student house (self-catered), to between £127 and £149 per week for a large, fully-catered room in university halls of residence.
Although all of these options are available to you as a HYMS student, we recommend that student houses or the en-suite rooms in Taylor Court flats would be best suited to your needs, as these places offer a contract which fits in with the longer HYMS terms. In halls the 31-week contract period is shorter than the HYMS term length, so you will need to make alternative arrangements to cover the extra days. Depending on availability, you might be able to arrange a move into a student house for this period.
If you're based at York, you will become a member of one of the University's eight undergraduate colleges which all have extensive on-campus accommodation. So you will never be far from lectures, the library, catering outlets and student bars.
Prices for 2015 / 16 range from £103.11 to £167.65 per week. There is a mixture of catered and self-catered accommodation available and just under half the rooms have ensuite facilities. As well as your study bedroom and shared kitchen, you will also be close to a range of facilities such as bars, cafes, dining halls, common rooms and study areas.
Please visit York's webpages for more information about applying for accommodation and their accommodation guarantee. Although you won't yet have been allocated to a university, you should apply for accommodation when the York application system opens in May and you will be contacted with a room offer if you are allocated to York.
