Points to consider

  • You'll sign an accommodation contract for a full academic year and pay for any any periods you may be away, including study tours.
  • The room is yours through the Christmas and Easter breaks.
  • Hall fees include a meal allowance, equivalent of up to ten* meals per week in term time (*assumes meal deals @ £4 each). If you prefer or wish to do your own cooking, you could consider living off campus.
  • You may not have lectures every day, and may be close enough to go home every weekend. If you think you'll only need accommodation Monday-Friday you could consider living in lodgings off campus.
  • Halls are a large community of students of different ages and sexes, and from different cultures and backgrounds.
  • Not all halls have TV aerial sockets in every room; we recommend checking the web pages for individual halls to see what's available. If you decide to bring your own television to campus you'll need to buy a TV licence.
  • All halls of residence are strictly non smoking.
