We recognise that for many of our students living away from home is a new experience. In Scarborough you will find everything you would expect from a vibrant, university town by the sea but the cost of living is also markedly cheaper than other parts of the UK - eating out, socialising and renting a room are all about 50% of the price that they would be in London.

High quality student accommodation is available from as little as £80 a week for a double ensuite room. Living in student accommodation during your first year is a great way for you to make new friends and integrate quickly into university life.

CU Scarborough has worked closely in partnership with a number of local student providers to secure high quality accommodation within easy walking distance of the campus, the town centre and the beach.

Booking accommodation

To secure your accommodation, it is essential that you contact our accommodation provider FutureLets. Accommodation will only be bookable for students who have firmly accepted a conditional or unconditional offer with CU Scarborough.
