AUB offers two halls of residence for MA students.
Across the October intake, MA students can apply for en-suite rooms at Madeira Road (Lansdowne). Students applying for the February intake can find en-suite and studio rooms on the Campus Halls (AUB Campus).
All rooms and studios are for single occupancy and have wired and Wi-Fi internet access. On site, students have access to laundry facilities, lockable mailboxes, bike storage and reception/security on site 24-hours a day.
The Unibus service provides regular direct buses between AUB Campus and the Lansdowne. Travel to campus (approximately 2.5 miles away) takes 15 minutes by bus or bike; all halls have secure bike storage.
Bookings for halls of residence open in advance, and students are able to select their chosen halls of residence and room type. Please note that rooms are limited and not guaranteed.
Students can contact the university’s Student Services team, who are on hand to offer advice and guidance on accommodation issues.
