Student Life  Accommodation

Castle Irwell

'Castle Irwell is the essence of what life at University is all about!'

Ed Lister








Castle Irwell Student Village is part of a mixed use accommodation and sports complex, and  is just over one mile from the Allerton campus. It is an extremely popular site with over 1,000 student bedrooms. Every student has their own bedroom with washbasin and will share kitchen, dining and bathroom facilities (washbasins, toilets and showers).
