The University of Northampton has many accommodation options, the most popular one with UNIC students being the University of Northampton's Bassett-Lowke Halls of Residence as it is conveniently located directly opposite the College. You can walk from your room to UNIC within minutes which is sure to make those early lectures and classes a little less of a shock to the system.

Like UNIC, Bassett-Lowke is located at the University’s Avenue Campus. The halls has bedrooms with private washrooms and each flat usually has six single bedrooms and a communal kitchen. All of our rooms are furnished with a bed, desk, wardrobe, bookshelf, chair and bin. The main utility bills for heating, lighting, water and electricity are included within your rent to make it a little easier for you.

A regular free bus service provides easy access to the Waterside Campus and the Town Centre during the week. There is also a supermarket, post office, gym and a range of restaurants and eateries all within walking distance.

Easy application process

You can apply for a room at Bassett-Lowke as soon as you have accepted your UNIC offer and paid your tuition fee deposit.

Although applications are issued and managed entirely by the University of Northampton, applications should first be submitted by completing our UNIC online form. Once we have received your application and updated our records we will then refer you to the University Accommodation Team to finalise the booking.

Please be aware that as the accommodation team manage rooms for over 2,500 students this process could take up to seven days to process. Please also be aware that if you arrive to enrolment without sorting your accommodation it can take up to two weeks to sort. Enrolment is the busiest time of year for the University so expect long delays if you do try and book on arrival.


A Key and Damage Deposit of £300 will be payable on acceptance of the room offer so please allow for this in your budget.


Request a welcome pack

You can request a welcome pack for £25 to be ready in your room on arrival. This includes duvet, pillow, sheet, bed linen, a plate, side plate, bowl, cutlery, pan, toilet roll, a mug and glass. Simply select the 'yes' option on the application form to order yours. That's one less thing to worry about when you arrive in the UK. For more information email
