Cannington Halls of Residence

At the Cannington Halls of Residence, most of our rooms are single occupancy, with a limited amount of shared accommodation available.

Students are housed dependant on their age and whether they are studying further or higher education. Catered and self-catering options are available for students over 18. For under 18s, accommodation costs include a meal card. Meal cards are compulsory for all under 18 students. All of our accommodation is supported by a 24 hour residential team and our accommodation is covered by CCTV.

Facilities include free Wi-Fi, on-site restaurants and cafes, free on-site parking and a laundry. There is a communal common room which is open for all students to use and contains pool tables, ping pong, a large screen TV, Game Consoles and DVDs.  We also have a bar on-site for residential students use, serving a selection of soft drinks and alcoholic beverages and snacks. The common room is open from 8am to 5pm and then 6pm to midnight for students to use.

Cannington Village

Cannington is a charming village which plays host to a number of local shops for your convenience such as a post office, newsagent, butcher, baker, hair and beauty salon, church, bed and breakfast as well as public houses and many more local entertainment attractions.

Transport Links

Buses run regularly to and from the University Centre from Halls. Excellent transport links to the M5, A38 and A39 allow easy access to the coast, Devon and Cornwall. There are cycle racks available for student use.

Car Parking

Parking is free but spaces are limited. All vehicles are left at your own risk. You must take out appropriate insurance as the University Centre will not cover any loss or damage. Please note bicycles are not allowed in any Halls’ buildings. If found, they will be removed and placed in the cycle racks provided for your use.


A full social calendar with a diverse range of activities are provided as part of the accommodation package, ranging from barbecues to sports to film nights, we aim to provide something for everyone. Taking part in activities is a great way to meet people, other than those on your course and make new friends. Students can also bring friends who are not residential by signing them in with the Residential Team.
