The University is 10-15 minutes' walk South of the City Centre and there are many hotels within a reasonable walking distance.

Here are some suggestions.

Ibis on Charles Street/Princess Street

Ibis on Portland Street

Budget Ibis on Pollard Street

Pendulum Hotel

Of these, the Ibis on Charles/Princess Street and Pendulum are closest to the Alan Turing Building. The following three are rather more expensive (the rooms at Roomzzz have cooking facilities).
