Pritchatts House Global Community

This unique living environment will provide residents with an opportunity to build friendships with students from around the world. 

In large flats, designed for socialising and interacting, residents will live with both UK and international students in a truly multicultural setting. The Global Community will feature social activities and special events to introduce residents to UK and world cultures in fun and interactive ways. 

What makes the Global Community a great place to live?

When you come to University, your flatmates often become your closest friends. Common interests will be considered when allocating residents to flats in the Global Community but additionally, your flat will consist of a culturally diverse makeup of residents. Living amongst UK students and international students from many different countries means that you will have an opportunity to make friends from around the world whilst learning about other cultures first hand. In the Global Community, you’ll enhance your ability to communicate across cultures and you’ll experience the food, language, music, and perspectives of different people each and every day. Social events such as world holiday celebrations, nation-themed parties, and day-trips to sites of interest in the UK will make living in the Global Residence fun and interactive.

“You never know who you're going to meet at university and having friends from all over the world is so enriching. You can learn unique and interesting things from different cultures and it really broadened my horizons as a person. Also, it's great knowing I have somewhere to stay if I visit my friends' home countries!”

“Living in Pritchatts House was a fantastic way to settle into University life; with large flats and a sociable atmosphere it felt like one big family. Not only were the bedrooms spacious, the location made the heart of campus a short ten minute walk away... the addition of a cleaning service was a huge bonus!”
