Most are single rooms although a handful of students each year will choose to share. Rooms on the top floors are split level with a bed upstairs and a study, storage and seating downstairs.

All students have access to well-equipped kitchens, most of which have seating areas, making for a more sociable experience.

    Licence periods vary between staircases. You have the option to choose a room with a 33-week licence (Term-time only) or a 39-week licence, meaning you don't have to remove your belongings over the Christmas and Easter vacations.
