Are the floors segregated between males and females? 

Yes. We believe that each gender should have their own privacy and bathroom facilities. In our residential hall we have two floors for male residents and two floors for female residents.

What type of room will I have?

All rooms are single study bedrooms with built-in desk, chair, wardrobes and shelving.

Can I personalise my room?

We encourage residents to make their room comfortable with their own personal touches. When putting posters, pictures and other items on the walls we ask you to use blue tack or 3M hooks with command adhesive, which will not damage the walls.

Can my family stay overnight when dropping me off or visiting?

We have two self-contained flats for parents to stay in at a reasonable rate.  Early bookings are essential as the flats are in great demand.

What are the facilities?

Each room is supplied with internet connection. Each floor has two shared bathrooms, kitchenettes and common rooms.  External to the residential hall is the Student Centre which contains a table tennis table, pool table and foosball for entertainment, as well as relaxation areas with a large TV. There is also a squash court, gym and an outdoor court for tennis, netball and basketball.

Can I have visitors in my room?

Visitors may visit you in your room. If the person is of the opposite gender they may visit between 10.00 am and 12.00 pm.  All visitors must be signed in and out by the person they are visiting.

Do I need to supply my own linen?

Two sheets, one pillowslip and two towels are supplied each week and these are professionally laundered. We supply blankets but have found that residents generally prefer to bring their own quilt and quilt cover.

Do I need to notify you if I go home for holidays?
