Six reasons to live in university accommodation at UCR

There are so many reasons why you might choose to move away from home and into university accommodation, such as to gain independence, convenience, make new friends and more. Living at UCR will provide you with a place you can call your new home.

Gain independence

When you first move to university, you will gain so much independence in comparison to living with family. You will have a newfound freedom, being able to do what you want, when you want, within reason of course. You can plan your own schedule and time around your studies, have friends over when you want and be in control of your own washing and meals every day. Although it’s nice to have your parents cook for you each night, it’s also nice to have autonomy over what you eat every day.


Another massive factor as to why it’s great to move onsite at UCR is the convenience it offers. Set your morning alarm a little later and walk just around the corner to your course lecture or practical. No one can ever complain about an extra 30 minutes in bed. We also have a range of facilities onsite so you will have everything you need without having to even leave the site such as a gym, social space, cafes and much more.

Make new friends

It is normal to miss your friends and family when you first move away from home, but thankfully living in student accommodation, it’s so easy to meet new people. You might even meet best friends for life, and they’ll be living next door to you! Your social life will never be better, with parties, societies, socials and plenty of exciting nightlife in and around campus.

Benefits of living in Nantwich 

UCR is situated in the beautiful town of Nantwich, and this vibrant market town always has something going on, whether you fancy going out for lunch, a night out, getting active or attending one of the many events throughout the year, you will always have something to do. From the Nantwich Food Festival, to the Jazz and Blues Festival and the Nantwich Show (held at Reaseheath), there is always hustle and bustle about the town. Or if you feel like venturing a little further, with excellent transport links it is easy to get to nearby cities, such as Chester, Manchester and Liverpool.  

Utility bills are included in the accommodation fees 

All utility bills are included in the accommodation fees, so you will not have to worry about saving extra for hidden costs or going over on bills. This makes budgeting so much easier too.  

Fully supported by 24/7 safeguarding team 

You will be given peace of mind knowing that you will be supported throughout your entire time living with us. You will be provided with 24-hour support from our safeguarding team, for any concerns you may have around the clock. 

Now you have a bit of a low down on why living on site may be a fantastic choice, find out more about living on the UCR campus on the accommodation page of our website.
