We’re excited to welcome you to Buckingham! To experience student life to the full, why not live on campus for your first year?
We have a wide variety of rooms to choose from and our accommodation is covered by the UUK Student Accommodation Code of Practice.
If you are a new student then perhaps you should consider choosing accommodation on the Hunter Street campus. We believe by doing so, it will enable you to make lifelong friends straight away and feel at home, right from the beginning, in the heart of our student community.
For our mature and Postgraduate students and for those of you who appreciate a quieter way of life, then our Moreton Road campus is the ideal place for you. Our modern houses and flats will provide you with a comfortable home in which you’ll be able to both study and chill.
It is entirely up to you where you choose to live and we will always respect the room choices that you ask for.
Take a good look at what we have to offer you. There are some 360 degree photographs that you will find very handy.
Don’t forget to read our terms and conditions – this is very important.

Our newest campus is located on a residential housing estate, just off the Moreton Road in Buckingham. The University bought a block of flats and several houses when the estate was being built. This accommodation would suit more mature students, Post Graduates, or those of you who appreciate the quieter things in life. It is a little bit further away – a 15 minute walk to the town centre, a 25 minute walk to the Hunter Street campus. However the properties are very nice and have a modern feeling about them. The kitchens all have washing machines and there are clothes lines in the gardens. Car parking is on the side of the road; bicycles can be kept in the gardens.
The Verney Park campus is located in Buckingham, and it will take you about 10 minutes to walk to the Hunter Street campus. There is a Leisure Centre just across the road and large Tesco and Lidl supermarkets about a 5 minute walk away. Buckingham town centre, in the other direction, is a 10 minute walk away. There is plenty of free car parking and some storage for bicycles. There is a laundrette situated in the Franciscan building, accessible to all students. Although the University’s main facilities are located on Hunter Street there is a library and a café inside the Franciscan building. The following schools are based here – Applied Computing, Law and Psychology.
