Coronavirus emergency

Please note that while the coronavirus emergency lasts we have changed our normal way of working.

There is specific information and advice relevant to coronavirus on these pages of this site:

  • News page: you will find here links to the updated Heathfield guidelines, and those of both the University of East Anglia and Norwich University of the Arts.
  • FAQ: we have amended our normal viewing and letting procedure to take account of the emergency. The FAQs entitled Can I come and see Heathfield before committing myself to a tenancy?, Can I try before I buy? and Can I have a shorter contract, or end it early? tell you how we will enable you to make an informed choice about living at Heathfield.  
  • Applying to Heathfield: This page tells you how we will enable you to make an informed choice about living at Heathfield. The page includes our application form for you to fill in.

We are David and Sarah Patey, the owners of Heathfield Norwich. David has 25 years of professional experience building and managing large student accommodation projects for universities in London. As a family, we have over many years given hospitality to students through the charity Host UK.

We aim to enable students to build enriching and lasting friendships here in our community at Heathfield Norwich.


We strongly believe that students benefit from the richest possible experience during their time at university. We welcome students at both UEA and NUA, at various stages of study, from different disciplines, and both home and international students. 

We hope the diverse community at Heathfield Norwich will help to prepare our students for fruitful lives after their studies.
