Living on campus will give you a wealth of opportunity, both socially and educationally. However, starting at college can be a bit daunting and we know that living in Halls is an integral part of your campus experience. This is why we provide a range of options to suit different needs and budgets.

Living at our York Campus puts you right at the heart of college life. There is a good mix of rooms, some with shared kitchen and bathroom facilities, some en suite rooms with a shared snack kitchen and a small number of self-catering rooms with shared bathroom facilities. 

Askham Bryan College is rated Outstanding for Care Standards

Statement regarding Accommodation refunding for current students 24/04/2020

Following Government guidance it is not expected that the College will be able to reopen residential accommodation for the summer term. As a result we will be processing credits and/or refunds for student accommodation and associated catering over the next month. We will credit and/or refund all fees from 21 March 2020, when students were asked to leave College accommodation and will therefore not be seeking payment for residential accommodation for the summer term.

Refunds will be made back to the person currently paying the direct debit. No further direct debits will be taken by the College. If you have already cancelled your direct debit and missed your March payment you may owe some accommodation fees; we will be in touch once we have reconciled your account should there be an outstanding balance.

Should students be able to return to accommodation during this term, pro-rata charges will apply and will be communicated as necessary.

Any refunds processed will not include your accommodation bond. Bonds will only be refundable once our staff can return to site and can check each room, in-line with your accommodation agreement, this may not be until the end of the College academic year.
