Living in Halls puts you right at the heart of University life. Each accommodation building has it's own student community that you will become a part of. Throughout the year there will be lots of activities and events to get involved with. You can even be a Hall Rep or Hall Captain for your building.

Join our community

Once you have been allocated a hall you will be invited to join one of our hall groups on Microsoft Teams by logging in with your @bath username (e.g. abc123@bath.ac.uk). You can use this to meet your flatmates, learn about halls activities and Freshers' Week 2020, and ask questions about your new home in halls. You'll be able to join a group from the end of August, once you have your allocation.

If you can't wait to meet other Freshers, make sure you join our official freshers' facebook page.
