Accommodation in Term 3

Student food and accommodation fees cover Onsite Teaching Weeks in terms 1 and 2 only for all course programmes.

For students starting in September and January, we do not normally offer students, on any programme, food and accommodation after the end of Term 2, when postgraduate students will be working on their dissertations. Students must make arrangements to vacate their rooms when the second term ends.

There are nevertheless instances where accommodation may become available to students in Term 3. Where this is the case, all students will be notified and further details provided. International students on student visas will be given priority for this accommodation. However, there is no guarantee that you will be offered the same room as you held in Term 1 and Term 2, or on the same site.

Students who commence their studies in January and who are on residential programmes will be offered accommodation for the duration of their taught modules, normally leaving the estate to complete their dissertation.


Our Courtyard Rooms offer quiet, comfortable, accommodation in our stunning medieval courtyard. Your stay will include all the amenities and catering detailed above.  

In addition, our private, Grade II* Listed Gardens are directly adjacent and freely accessible to students.

These locations offer the ideal opportunity to relax and unwind after a busy day of studies.
