University shared houses

University shared houses

Anglia Ruskin owns a number of houses in Cambridge, which our students can rent. University shared houses are a great way to make friends and enjoy living in the community.

All our houses are within two miles of campus: some are right next door, others an easy walk or cycle ride away. They’re in residential areas close to local shops, restaurants, sports centres, cinemas and other amenities.
