Student Accommodation at Ulster University
Ulster is a multi-campus university that boasts four campuses across Northern Ireland: Belfast, Coleraine, Jordanstown and Magee. Situated in the cultural heart of the city, the Cathedral Quarter, Ulster University's Belfast Campus constitutes one of Northern Ireland's largest urban developments.
Thanks to a £250 million redevelopment programme to upgrade its teaching and learning facilities, the Belfast campus is being extended to 75,000sqm to welcome over 15,000 students. The aim of the rejuvenation project is to provide a creative and innovative environment that will facilitate learning and research on a new level.
Although it’s renowned for its offerings in art and design education, the Belfast campus spans a broad range of courses in subjects such as computing, communications, event management, digital animation and architecture. As a career-focused learning environment, over 90% of Ulster graduates are in work or further study six months after graduation. This focus on employability is why Ulster University offers students work placements which prepare them for their professional careers, and why the Times Higher Education 100 Under 50 rankings classify the institution as a leading university and within the top 100 globally.
When it comes to student accommodation at Ulster University, students in Belfast will be spoilt for choice. While the city centre itself makes for the perfect location to soak up the art and culture in the heart of the capital, student homes on Lisburn Road and Ormeau Road boast beautiful architecture, affordable prices and a reliable bus network that connects students back to campus in under half an hour.
