Accommodation and Catering

Our accommodation is situated on two different sites: Bailey and Parson's Field.

Rooms at both sites are connected to the University high-speed data network allowing access to the Internet and are offered on a standard let basis. This includes the Christmas vacation, but if you wish to stay during the 2-week Christmas closedown Bailey residents will be asked to move to a self-catering flat at Parson’s field (rooms do not usually have to be cleared at this time). During Easter vacation you may be asked to vacate your room for residential open days (secure storage for some belongings being provided); you will be reimbursed for those nights.

Ten Meals Package

Students living in our self-catered accommodation can purchase a ten meals package, giving the flexibility of being self-catered plus the convenience of having 10 prepaid meals in college per week to be taken at any time, Monday to Sunday.
