The Global Community



University is all about new experiences, and living at The Global Community will bring you plenty.

Want to experience life from a different cultural perspective? Or get to grips with a new language? The Global Community is a unique living environment, thoughtfully designed to help you build friendships and socialise with likeminded UK and international students.

Residents have the opportunity to get involved and shape their own experiences. The programme is designed to introduce different world cultures, encourage conversation, establish life-long friendships and assist students in developing the skills they need to become modern global citizens.

What makes the Global Community a unique living experience?

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.

Pritchatts House at Pritchatts Park Village is home to The Global Community. Its central location, next to the Pritchatts Park Social Centre, and its uniquely large flats, make it the ideal place to meet and mingle with other residents.

BA Philosophy

“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!”
