The Green

The Green is the centre of student life here at Bradford.

It's located just a few minutes from the Students' Union, the library and your morning lectures. This makes it the perfect place to call home during your time at university.

Living at The Green means you'll be a part of a close-knit community, our Green Ambassadors organise social events, trips, competitions and games – so you'll have plenty of opportunities to meet new people and make lots of friends.

Apartments are great if you like your privacy. Each of them has six en-suite bedrooms, so you can enjoy your own private shower room.

Every apartment has a shared kitchen/dining area and living space and bedrooms include a three quarter bed, desk study area and a wardrobe.

Our apartments also cater for people with a wide range of disabilities.
