Accommodation Allocation Policy
Undergraduates will be accommodated in college-owned accommodation for the whole of their course, if they wish. First year undergraduates are allocated rooms on the central site or in Ship Street. In subsequent years, undergraduates may apply by ballot for accommodation in 3-person or 4-person flats at the Annexe sites.
All rooms in the college and Ship Street houses will vary in size and shape due to the age of the buildings.
Availability - Undergraduate rooms - All fresher undergraduates are allocated rooms in College or Ship Street Centre by the College. Any rooms remaining after the fresher undergraduates are housed are offered to existing undergraduates. Graduate rooms - A number of rooms are offered to existing graduates and the remainder allocated to fresher graduates by the College. For more information see the Accommodation Policy 2013/14.
FLATS - GENERAL INFORMATION
All flats are fully furnished with electric cookers and refrigerators, but students must provide their own cooking equipment, crockery and cutlery. Bedding and towels are not provided. Basic cleaning equipment is provided in each flat/house, and there are communal vacuum cleaners in each block. Each site has a laundry, with token operated automatic washing machines and tumble dryers. The laundries also have an iron and ironing board which can be used free of charge.
All flats have free ethernet access to the College and University computer networks, but telephone service, if required, must be arranged by the occupants directly with the telephone company. There is a public payphone at both complexes. Televisions are not provided, and students wishing to bring their own will need a valid television licence.
There are regular bus services from both sites, to and from the city centre, and many students choose to cycle to College. There are locked bicycle sheds at both sites. Limited car parking is available at both sites, but parking permits must be displayed. Due to restrictions on space only one car per flat is allowed a permanent permit, which gives permission to park on site but does not guarantee a space.
We regret that we are unable to accommodate children in any of our properties, as we have no accommodation suitable for families. Please note that the keeping of animals and other pets is not allowed.
