On and off campus living at Hartpury University

Accommodation guide 2024-25

Settle into an accommodation option to suit your taste and budget – at Hartpury University you can choose to live on-campus surrounded by Gloucestershire’s beautiful countryside or off-campus in the heart of Gloucester City centre. 

If you want the luxury of living on site, surrounded by countryside and being able to roll out of bed and into your lectures, our on-campus halls of residence are the right choice for you. If city life is more your thing, you may be more suited to our off-site accommodation, or a private house-share, in the heart of Gloucester, which is just a 15 minute bus or car journey away.
