A home away from home 

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.

You’ll also have access to sports facilities including a gym, library, our Red & Black café, the Equine Arena restaurant and Graze restaurant, where a wide variety of good value hot meals, snacks and refreshments are available during the day.

Can I apply to live on site?

Only A-level students and Level 3 diploma students are eligible to apply for accommodation. Students who are able to travel on public or college transport will not be allocated accommodation until 31st August and only if rooms are available. It is advisable that you register for transport as soon as possible. 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 groups who are given priority, which include (in no particular order):

  • Students on a recognised two year programme returning for year two
  • International students
  • Students who have on-site early and late duties as their programme of study
  • Those who keep their horse on site
  • Students who to play elite sport with us.

All college room rates include breakfast (Mon-Fri) and five main meals to be taken any lunchtime or evening, Mon-Sun. Adapted rooms are available. The room rate is inclusive of all utility bills and Wi-Fi. Diploma and A-level students are not allowed to cater for themselves if they live on site.

When will you need to leave? 

Our rooms are term time only. You'll be asked to leave your room for the Christmas and Easter holiday periods. It is important to note that when you vacate, your room must be cleared of all belongings. 

Self-study weeks

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.

Assistance dogs

We recognise that assistance dogs provide invaluable support to individuals with a range of disabilities and in response welcomes accredited Assistance Dogs registered with Assistance Dogs UK or one of their partner agencies on campus including residential accommodation. Read our full statement.

How to apply
