AUB ResLife

We're here to help you get settled quickly in the accommodation that's right for you.

AUB ResLife

AUB’s residential life programme is for students living in AUB Halls of Residence.

Through this programme we aim to create an inclusive and supportive environment where students have a sense of belonging, feel supported to be curious, creative and build the confidence to live and study independently.

Whether you're after support with your finances, study skills or health and welfare, or perhaps you're looking for careers advice or chances to be social? AUB ResLife will help you find the best opportunities to get the most from your time with us.
