The student support services team offers a wide range of information and advice including accommodation, travel, local services and living costs.


Although the colleges themselves do not offer accommodation, many have links with local providers of student housing and bedsits. All six colleges are located in large cities, so accommodation is generally plentiful.

Each city is famous for its music history and famous bands, including: The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Queen, The Clash, Fatboy Slim, Portishead, Massive Attack, Oasis, The Smiths, The Stone Roses, Sinaed O'Connor and U2.
