The reason so many students choose Norwich as their place of study? A top-class education, and the fact that It provides the energy of a city, alongside the charm of a small town.

When making the difficult decision on what university to attend, we always recommend attending a university open day. It’s not only a brilliant way to research the university itself, but a great opportunity to get a feel for the location that you’ll be moving to.

And of course, a vital part of an open day is checking out where you could be living! Crown Place, our Student Accommodation in Norwich is packed full of modern features to provide the ultimate student living experience. If you can’t make it to an open day, just get in touch with us to arrange a tour at your convenience.
