Background Welholme House is the Grimsby Institute’s latest Halls of Residence, being recently refurbished in 2009 from an old historic building into a high quality academic residence. With costs reaching around £700,000 for the project, this reflects the scale of the development and the modernisation process undertaken to make it one of the most desirable places to live in the area. The project took only three months to complete from start to finish, with teams of tradesman working around the clock to finish the accommodation in time for the start of the 2009 academic year. Many of the existing features of the property remain, including the high windows and ceilings, the original oak staircase and the ‘Coach House’ at the rear of the property that provides separate private accommodation on the same site.

Main Features (Main Building) The two-storey accommodation comprises of 21 beds arranged across 10 shared double rooms and one single room. All rooms are en-suite to give students the benefit of greater privacy and flexibility in terms of using the amenities. All rooms are very large to ensure that those sharing have more than enough space for each other, with each room having high ceilings and large windows to provide as much of an aired feeling as possible. The site itself is split into two areas, these being the main building itself and the ‘Coach House’ at the rear. The main building has 13 of the 21 available beds across six shared double rooms and one single room, which includes full disabled access. On the ground floor there is a student common room complete with leather sofas and a 37in LCD TV screen for the occupants to use at their leisure. The kitchen is also on the ground floor in the main building and is full stainless steel, with two large cookers, a central island for preparation, three large fridges and a dining area adjoining the kitchen for students to sit and eat together if they wish (This accommodation is self catered). Opposite the kitchen there is the laundry room which includes two large top-loading washing machines and dryers that can more than accommodate large loads. Also, there is a separate washroom and toilet for communal use complete with disabled facilities. The top floor of the main building is accessed by the original oak staircase, where we have four large shared double rooms, again all with en-suite facilities. There is also a shared bathroom that any of the occupants can use at the top of the stairs if they wish. Based on the top floor is the communications room where the internet connections and CCTV security systems are housed to provide the accommodation with high speed connectivity and security for the residents.

(Coach House) In addition to the main building we have the Coach House, which is a completely separate annex used for accommodation. This additional building is comprised of four shared double rooms, again complete with en-suite facilities. This building is separated by car parking facilities to the main building, where the residents have greater privacy but still need to access the main building to use the kitchen, laundry and common room facilities.


Additional Information As mentioned before, there is on-site car parking for the residents to use at their discretion. Within the grounds there is a walled garden with a large grass open area where students can relax and use the space for a range of activities. Bicycle shelters are also included at the back of the site where residents can safely lock them up and keep them protected from the elements. There is an advanced security system in place for the whole accommodation area, which is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week by Grimsby Institute Security Personnel at our main site just 10 minutes walk away. In the event that you misplace your room key, Grimsby Institute security personnel and the Residential Accommodation Manager will be on hand to provide you with a temporary replacement (provided at a charge of £10). The location is perhaps the greatest asset to the site as it is in very close proximity to both the main campus and the town centre. Just across the road from Welholme House is The Wheatsheaf pub that offers great deals on both food and drink and is ideally situated for students staying at Welholme House. Also regarding location, People’s Park is again only a 10 minute walk from the accommodation. Here you can find a lake, large open grass areas, a pavilion and restaurant in the grounds of this beautiful park maintained by the Grimsby Institute themselves. Regarding Health and Safety issues, fire safety equipment is fully integrated into both buildings including smoke detectors in all rooms and communal areas, foam and CO2 fire extinguishers and fire alarm activation points. There are fire exit signs and fire notices to inform residents what to do in case a fire breaks out, and also rally points for residents to meet at a safe distance from the building until help arrives. Under UK law, smoking is prohibited within any of the Halls of Residence or any public building (this also includes bedrooms). If you wish to smoke, all of the accommodation blocks have smoking shelters away from the building for the health and safety of the other residents. As full cooking facilities are provided in the accommodation, cooking is not allowed in the building except for the kitchen. If you wish to bring personal cooking equipment into the Halls of Residence, these must then remain in the kitchens.

Parking & Vehicles For students who would like to use the car parking facilities at the accommodation, this is provided free of charge. We will however require the vehicle’s registration number, a copy of insurance details, car tax and M.O.T. certificate, along with two forms of identification. There is an on site car park for residents to use with direct access to the main road into and out of Grimsby centre. There is also ample parking at the Grimsby Institute main campus for residents who need to travel in to study and leave their vehicle.

Background Scartho Hall has been part of Grimsby’s heritage for three generations and is steeped in history. The building itself was previously owned by an affluent solicitor who owned a catalogue of properties in the Great Grimsby area. The Grimsby Institute purchased the dilapidated property in 2007 and began a project that would bring a new lease of life to the listed building. Being easily mistaken for a stately home from the outside, it is one of the most attractive settings in the area surrounded by large grass areas overshadowed by tall trees and wildlife. The Grimsby Institute has a very strong reputation in terms of property regeneration in order to be used for educational purposes, and Scartho Hall takes its rightful place as one of the flagship examples.

Main Features (Main Building) The main building at Scartho Hall can accommodate 27 residents allocated across eight shared double rooms and 11 single rooms. It is a two-storey building with communal toilet and shower facilities on both floors. There are two main entrances to the main building at the front and the rear, and at the front of the building you will find the post room and the information boards for the residents. Near the rear of the building is the stainless steel kitchen, complete with several large cookers and fridge freezers coupled with plenty of storage space. In the right hand side of the building is the locker room where students can take out a

slightly more expensive due to the added privacy that they provide, coupled with their en-suite facilities. Both the single and double rooms come with en-suite bathrooms, and residents are just a short walk across the courtyard to the main building where they of course have full use of the communal facilities, with the closest perhaps most importantly being the kitchen.

Additional Information Scartho Hall is situated about a 15 minute walk from the main Grimsby Institute campus via the main road entering Grimsby. Scartho Hall is set back about 200 meters from the main road behind large grassy and wooded areas to add to its secluded nature, without being removed from main access points to surrounding areas. Just outside the Halls of Residence is a bus stop that allows residents to travel both to and from the Grimsby Institute and also onwards to the town centre. In close proximity to the accommodation is Scartho Village where you will find a small convenience store, hairdressers, bank, take-away restaurants and much more all within a five minute walk. In the same village there is a large park for recreation and also a pub that serves both food and drink. For medical peace-of-mind, approximately a five minute walk from the accommodation is the main Grimsby ‘Diana Princess of Wales’ Hospital. Regarding sport and leisure, in between the main campus and Scartho Hall is the Grimsby Swimming Pool complete with a 25 meter pool, gym and fitness facilities. There is an advanced security system in place for the whole accommodation area, which is monitored 24 hours a day, seven days a week by Grimsby Institute Security Personnel at our main site. In the event that you misplace your room key, Grimsby Institute Security Personnel and the Residential Accommodation Manager will be on hand to provide you with a temporary replacement (provided at a charge of £10).
