Stylish, secure and with shuttle buses to St Peter’s Campus, u-student Sunderland was designed to provide an unforgettable university experience. With its name a reference to the city’s industrial past, The Forge is also a short walk from the Sunderland University city campus.
At u-student we offer a number of student housing options, all of which have the facilities you need to spend your university years in pure comfort. Our student accommodation in Sunderland is in fact the only housing site with its own bar and shop, making life as a student simple in a thriving location that boasts the best amenities come day or night.
With free shuttle buses to both University of Sunderland campuses and the city campus within walking distance, our accommodation offers the perfect base to study, party and live, a home away from home when you are missing family and friends, and a conveniently located, vibrant hub to sample the infamous nightlife that the city is known and loved for.
In addition to the facilities provided at the on-site bar The Meeting Place* and on-site store Your Shop*, our centrally based student halls give individuals moving to the city to study all they need for one monthly cost. Stylishly decorated and fully secure, each bedroom at The Forge comes equipped with a desk, chair, noticeboard, shelving, under-bed storage space, with upgrades to our premium accommodation providing all this and en-suite shower room. The shared facilities are also of the highest quality, and provide everything you need, right down to knives, forks, pots and pans.
With accessible rooms and same gender digs also available, seeing the range of accommodation options for yourself is a must in preparation for the next academic year.
*Bar & Shop opening times are subject to footfall and use of those facilities
It's all included
Bikes can be the perfect form of travel while at university, so our accommodation has storage to ensure that they’re kept safe. All you need to bring is your own locking device.
Fully Equipped Kitchen
To make moving in that bit easier, our kitchens are fully equipped, with enough pots, pans, cutlery and crockery for every meal. The kitchens also include another student necessity – a dishwasher.
With every room fully furnished, our accommodation is both trendy and practical. From cosy beds to convenient desks and ample storage, u-student will go the extra mile to make you feel at home.
Our sites have their own laundry with coin-operated washing machines and tumble dryers, so you don’t have the hassle of going off-site to do your washing.
It’s good to know that someone’s got your back, so we’ve included Endsleigh contents insurance in the rent. It’s just one thing less to worry about.
Because university isn’t all about those last-minute essays and seemingly endless assignments, we’ve got places to kick back, relax, catch up with friends and forget about things for a while.
Having a car at university is a wonderful thing – but you need somewhere to park it. Fortunately, our private access parking spaces are available for an annual fee.
A fully equipped computer room is always useful at university. With super-fast broadband included, this space can be invaluable and a great place to work together.
A corner shop at your accommodation; you’ll soon realise how handy this is. Beyond convenient, our on-site Your Shop is perfect for all your daily essentials and more.
While you live with u-student, you will have the support of the on-site accommodation manager during office hours and security staff every hour of every day.
An en-suite is the Holy Grail of student accommodation. With a private shower, sink and toilet, an en-suite is perfect for invigorating yourself for an early lecture or sprucing up for a night out.
With a private en-suite shower and sink, our new Premium rooms were designed to make your life that little bit easier.
Your safety is paramount. With 24-hour security, swipe access and CCTV, we’re doing everything we can to make your stay as safe as possible.
An essential for student living, super-fast broadband is absolutely priceless. With Wi-Fi across the entire site, it will always be easy to connect.
Moving away from home can be stressful, so we like to make things as simple as possible. Including contents insurance, broadband and all utility bills in the rent makes life easier for you.
Instead of wandering around town in search of a free cash point, you can just nip across to our on-site ATM to make withdrawals.
Staffed every day of every week, a 24-hour reception is a handy go-to point for any queries or questions. Plus, it can be nice to see a familiar face.
Bar (For Events)
The Meeting Place, our on-site social space that can be used for events, either held by us or proposed events from our residents
Because nobody likes walking to university in the rain, we’ve got shuttle buses that go between campuses and our accommodation on a regular basis.
