The Castings

Get ready to move to brand new student residence, the Castings. Opened in September 2014. It’s a humble home in a hot Huddersfield location.

The site was formally occupied by the Robert Castings metal foundry, hence the name. The Castings is the place to make the most of the diverse social and academic scene in Huddersfield.

Not least because of the location. It’s a relief to have somewhere so close to call home when faced with those long days in the library – and those even longer nights in the Students’ Union.

Plus it takes only ten minutes to walk to the University of Huddersfield and all town centre amenities. With bus and train links a short walk away.


Choose one of 633 cluster flats with 3 to 6 bedrooms. Or choose from 20 studio apartments, with dual occupancy available too.

There’s a launderette, common room, study room, games room and TV room. Plus there’s a landscaped courtyard and ample bike storage facilities.

All cluster flats come with a shared kitchen. You get a large fridge-freezer, an oven, hob, lots of cupboard space, a combi microwave, breakfast bar, and more.

Each room has a study desk, study chair, ¾ size bed, large wardrobe, draws and shelf storage. All are furnished to a high standard. With clever little touches like plugs near to the mirror and storage under the bed.

Plus it’s easy to keep your stuff safe.

Because your safety and security is important the Castings is only accessible with an electronic key. There’s also a CCTV system, and 24 hour staff support if you have any questions, problems or maintenance needs.

But you shouldn’t have much trouble, especially because it’s easy to stay on top of bills. Your weekly rent includes everything – that’s electricity, water, gas, and contents insurance. With free 100MB super-fast broadband from September.

Put all this together and you can see our Huddersfield accommodation is fun, stylish and safe. It’s for these sorts of reasons that 22,000 students voted us as the Best Private Halls Provider in the National Student Housing Survey 2014 & 2015, plus we were short-listed for the Best Customer Service.
