What's the difference between a hotel and a college/residence?

While we're happy to provide accommodation to external guests when we can, we're first and foremost a home to our student residents. 

In addition to accommodation, we endeavour to provide students with academic, social and pastoral care and support. Also, no room service or wake up calls, sorry!
