Student lifestyle and accommodation

Student life

Life at Bellerbys is about much more than your opportunity to get a great education. We will help you immerse yourself in the life of your College and the city that will be your home during your studies. We know that you will perform best in your studies when you are happy in every aspect of your life. That's why we blend enrichment activities throughout your study day. These will inspire you in your studies and get you socialising with your fellow students. Our Colleges are in cities that are thriving with activity.


Your parents are bound to wonder: Are you eating right? At Bellerbys, you will be able to say "yes". You'll have easy access to tasty breakfasts, nutritious lunches and delicious dinners. Our on-site cafeterias can feed all your needs. Depending on your accommodation choices you might have the opportunity to cook for yourself. We can offer guidance on great places to shop so you can explore the diverse range of foods on offer, no matter which city you have chosen to study in. One of the many great things about our college locations is that both cities have a huge range of food choices. There are restaurants from all around the world. If you want pho, falafels, halloumi, tom yum, or herring, we are sure you will find something you like to eat.


College is a big change, and where you live is an important part of settling in and making friends. Where ever you decide to live your fellow students will be there for friendship and support. Our colleges offer secure, safe, modern accommodation. Find out more about our accommodation in Brighton, Cambridge and London.

"Bellerbys staff are very friendly. In my opinion, the best thing at Bellerbys which I couldn't find in anywhere else is the student service . I don't feel homesick when I am with the welfare team because they take care of me and send me to GP when I am not well.''
