College Accommodation

U18.jpg
Living in on-site accommodation is a brilliant way of meeting new friends and gaining confidence and independence. There are a variety of events and activities held throughout the week and the Heroes Common Room offers a social space to relax with your friends. We understand that it can be daunting living away from home for the first time, which is why we have a dedicated team to ensure the welfare and safety of all our students. The site has CCTV for extra security.

Level 1 and level 2 BTEC Diploma students are not eligible to apply for accommodation at Hartpury.


Only A level students and Level 3 BTEC Diploma students are eligible to apply.  Students who are able to travel on public or college transport will not be allocated accommodation until 31 August. It is advisable that you also register for Transport now.

While we always try to meet demand, applications for accommodation frequently exceed the number of rooms available. To support a fair process of allocation, we do have some groups who are given priority, which include (in no particular order):

  • Students under the age of 18
  • International students
  • Students who have onsite early and late duties as part of their course
  • Those who have Student Livery on-site
  • Students with scholarships to play elite sport at the College

Self-Study Weeks

Having listened to parental feedback in previous years we now have self-study weeks for students who live at college.  Self-study weeks take the place of college half-terms in October and February.

We actively encourage students to go home for these periods to enable them to rest and recuperate from the rigours of college life, however you have the flexibility to choose when you collect your son/daughter for the holiday period. The same applies for the return date, students can return to accommodation at a time to suit.

Students will be able to leave their belongings in their rooms during study week.

To ensure this flexible approach for the self-study weeks is successful, we need parents to fully utilise the passkey system and ensure they submit an Accommodation Absence in the usual way. This will ensure you don’t receive a late night call from the Wardening team.
