University of East Anglia: Study Abroad & Exchange: Student Life

Participants live alongside British and other international students in residence halls. Binghamton students are deliberately separated from one another in order to meet more UEA students. Rooms are single bed-studies, and students share bathrooms, self-catering kitchen facilities and common living areas. They can also live in residence hall suites or student flats at an additional charge.

Over 100 student clubs and societies, ranging from archery to yoga, are chartered by the Student Union. Union House is where many activities take place and where there are common rooms and a café. Intercollegiate and intramural sports are very popular; they include rugby, basketball, U.S. football, soccer, cricket, hockey, lacrosse and tennis.

UEA is an active participant in European exchanges, receiving many students from Western and Eastern Europe, and has more than 40 North American exchange partners. They also have special links, including exchanges with prestigious institutions in many other countries including Japan, Korea, China, Thailand, Vietnam, Australia and India. The popular Norwich International Club meets once a week and provides an opportunity to make contact with other international students. A Chaplaincy and an Islamic Prayer room offer a place for followers of all faiths to worship on campus.
