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.
Why Live on Campus?
It’s hard to feel lonely here, we organise sports and social events during the evenings which is a great way to meet people.
Living on campus helps you become more independent for your future life.
The close-knit campus means there’s always a friendly face around.
Great facilities such as the gym, Students’ Union, Learning Resource Centre, Internet Hub and Refectory are right on your doorstep.
In the evening there is a team of Enrichment and Safeguarding Wardens who organise and run various activities for the students to participate in and are there to deal with any situations that arise. Our Safeguarding telephone number is available to call 24 hours a day for any serious concerns students or parents may have (07773 312617).
Students joining us on the Stabekk Programme will be offered accommodation in the en suite hostels, in same gender areas.

Wired internet access is available in these rooms.
Pillows, duvets, bed linen, towels, crockery, cutlery and pans are not provided in student accommodation. We can provide these for you for a fee.
There are two launderettes on campus with self-service commercial washing machines and dryers for use by the students.

All accommodation is cleaned once a week and the bins are emptied daily. The communal areas, including stairs and bathrooms, are cleaned daily.
