Please note the following guidance regarding our Student Accommodation:
The management of residential accommodation provided at Askham Bryan College York and the campus at Newton Rigg College at Penrith is governed by guidance provided by The Government.
This is as follows for your information:
National Minimum Standards of providing Accommodation of Students under eighteen by Further Education Colleges (September 2018) here
Keeping Children Safe in Education Statutory Guidance (September 2018) here
Pillows, duvets, bed linen, towels, crockery, cutlery and pans are not provided in student accommodation. The student needs to bring these items with them and provide their own bedding which must meet fire retardant standards (most modern duvets and pillows will meet these standards, please check the care label for this information).
There are two launderettes on campus with self-service commercial washing machines and dryers for use by the students.
There is a strict no smoking policy at College. Students must not smoke in College accommodation and must use the designated smoking areas within the College grounds.
All accommodation is cleaned once a week and the bins are emptied daily. The communal areas, including stairs, kitchens and bathrooms, are cleaned daily. Cleaners will only clean rooms if they can do so safely and easily, the student needs to make sure their room is tidy!
Remember, if you bring a TV you will need a TV Licence which you can apply for once your hall name and number has been confirmed to you at the start of the year.
Those students bringing cars, motorbikes or mopeds on campus may do so free of charge but will need to register their vehicle with the College to receive a parking permit. Cars which do not display a permit cannot park on site. There is a car park on campus available for residential students to use.
Everyone with a vehicle on site is required to comply with the car parking and safe driving regulations. Any student found to be breaching these regulations will be informed that they can no longer bring their car on campus.
