Accommodation at Marjon means a great experience and a homely, friendly atmosphere.

Many of our students are moving away from home for the first time. Some are returning to study, whilst others come to us from overseas.

Many of our students choose to live on campus in their first year with us, meaning they settle in and make friends very quickly, and can easily take part in on-campus activities.

The benefits of living on-campus at Marjon include:

  • Safe environment with 24/7 campus support from duty staff and senior resident students during term time.
  • Accommodation owned and managed by the University, so no surprise fees.
  • Contents insurance, utility bills and broadband are included (with broadband support).
  • Convenient and sociable with study, dining, social and sports facilities all on your doorstep.
  • Low prices, significantly lower than the average university-owned accommodation price in the South West of £166/ week (NUS/Unipol Accommodation Costs Survey 2021).  According to StudentCrowd Plymouth has been ranked 20th in the UK for Cheapest Student Accommodation (15th in England)
