MLS Student Residences
MLS works with a range of local student residences, offering basic student accommodation that is generally inhabited by younger, university-aged, students. Some residences are self-catering, and others include breakfast and evening meal. Fees vary according to location and room-type, and can be found on our Student Residence Information Sheets:
MLS acts as an intermediary in arranging bookings at residences. All residences are non-MLS managed/owned and students will be required to agree separate terms direct with the residences. This may include payment of a damage deposit on arrival.
At any point during your stay at a residence, you will be able to talk with our Accommodation Officer for advice, should you need this.
