Home / International / Accommodation


At Sunderland College, we place a great importance in helping our international students find the right accommodation that matches your needs and lifestyle and we will strive to ensure that your time in Sunderland is safe and comfortable. The College, through its partnership with the University of Sunderland, is able to offer students the opportunity to stay in the University’s modern purpose built student accommodation, which is very clean, safe and secure.

To help familiarise yourself with your new surroundings and meet new friends of many different nationalities, we suggest all of our first year students stay in University accommodation.
