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!

IS LINEN PROVIDED, AND DO I NEED TO CLEAN?

All bedding and linen is provided, and cleaning's included in the cost of your booking.

SMOKING

Smoking is prohibited on all University grounds and inside any University buildings, including rooms. 

Residences and short-stay guests, however, have specific designated smoking areas that permit smoking for residents and short-stay guests only. 

Residents or short stay guests found smoking outside of these areas may incur a fine and disciplinary action.
