DIGS Storthes Hall Park is the The University of Huddersfield’s only approved, recommended and preferred accommodation provider. Rooms start from £91 per week with all bills included. All you pay is the weekly rent for your room, we have everything else covered! In 2021, we were voted Best Value in the National Student Housing survey, our range of social facilities and on-site events mean you can enjoy your time at University knowing you’re getting the most out of student life whilst saving a penny or two.

Whilst the cost of living is for the most part cheaper in Huddersfield compared to other locations around the U.K, many students get a part time job alongside their studies. Working the recommended 12 – 15 hours a week is great for bringing in some extra money and having a routine around your university commitments. However, don’t forget that uni comes first, that’s why you’re in Huddersfield after all. If you’re struggling with your finances, there are support options available, visit The University of Huddersfield‘s website for more information.
