We understand that feeling happy and settled within your environment gives you a much better chance of enjoying your course - that's why our accommodation aims to be like a home from home.
We have a long-standing tradition of helping students who need accommodation and we understand how important taking this step can be, particularity for our international students. Designed to meet your individual living requirements, you can choose to live independently in one of our fully furnished halls of residence or you might find that living with a local family in Homestay is the option for you.
Halls of Residence
Our halls are situated on the College campus. All halls are self-catering and have facilities where you can prepare your own meals. Alternatively, you can eat in the college cafeteria Monday to Friday and cater for yourself at the weekends.
We are able to offer a total of 170 single bedrooms in our purpose built, modern halls complex including a block specifically designed for under 18s. Layouts range from six person units with a shared shower, toilet and kitchen to five/six bedroom units with ensuite bathrooms and shared kitchen amenities. We also have rooms and facilities that have been adapted for disabled students (subject to assessment). All study bedrooms in the new halls include network points.
Our residences are situated within walking distance of both the College and the town centre making student living easy and convenient. You will also have full access of our communal areas which includes a common room complete with Ping Pong, TV and Xbox as well as an outdoor space for picnics and BBQs.
Living in Homestay
If you prefer living with a family, Homestay may be the best option for you. Students are housed in Homestay on a seven day basis in single or double bedded rooms with breakfast and evening meal supplied. The accommodation offered by Homestay varies but all students can expect to be provided with a bed, bedding, wardrobe, drawers, table/desk, chair and table lamp or similar. Homestay accommodation can be especially valuable for students from overseas as this gives them an opportunity to experience the British way of life.
Elite Athlete Performance Centre
The EAPC is a beautifully restored listed building that provides a total of 17 en-suite rooms for elite sports students under the age of 18. Refurbished to allow for student living, facilities include an expansive living space, shared kitchen and free laundry amenities. Room sizes range from standard to large with costs varying accordingly and you will have access to the communal student areas based on the grounds.
