“I would recommend anyone studying at Sunderland to live in student accommodation! I’ve made some amazing friends here and have loved the feeling of living in a community. I received great support from Accommodation Services, which made moving away from home a lot easier. Metro and bus stops are close by so it’s really easy to get to and from uni, and also into the town centre!”
