Private Halls

As an alternative to our student accommodation, there are plenty of privately-run halls near the college. Specifically tailored for students, they're easily accessible and within walking distance from our campuses. You can find out more in our handy Student Accommodation Guide

All rooms are fully furnished with optional internet packages and en-suite facilities. There's also an on-site laundry, management office, 24-hour caretaker, CCTV and secure door entry system. Before you sign on the dotted line, here are a few things to remember:

  • You can either live in a single en-suite room and share a kitchen or rent a flat on your own.
  • It's usually cheaper to share.
  • Prices can vary, so examine all your options.
  • Rent usually includes utilities, so check if this is the case.

Typical costs start from £125 per week for a single en-suite bedroom. Usual fees, terms and conditions apply.
