Guide to Housing 2018/19

Welcome At the University of Winchester we understand that where you live is an important factor in deciding where to study. Our aim is to help you through the process of securing good quality housing for the duration of your course, by offering University managed accommodation and providing information and advice on accommodation with us and in the Winchester Community. In this brochure we set out the options available to you to help you decide what might be right for you, not just for your first year but for the duration of your study.

Quality Assurance The University is signed up to ‘The Student Accommodation Code’, a code promoting best practice management of residential accommodation. In ensuring our adherence to the code, we choose to go beyond the standard legal obligations in the provision of our accommodation. For more information about the code please visit: www.thesac.org.uk For properties off campus in the Private Sector, any accommodation managed or advertised by the University is accredited by the Winchester City Council Shared Housing Accreditation Scheme. This means that these properties meet a set of standards and have been inspected by a qualified Environmental Health Officer. For more information about the scheme please visit: www.winchester.gov.uk/housing/private-housing/ winchestershared-housing-accreditation-scheme

Postgraduate students

Part-time students

There will be some accommodation available for postgraduate students. Rooms are allocated on a first applied, first allocated basis. We aim to house postgraduate students together in mature areas (over 24yrs) however this is dependent on the number of applications and the accommodation available.

We’re sorry that we can’t accommodate part-time students. You will need to secure accommodation in the Private Sector and Student Housing Services will be pleased to provide information and advice to assist you.

Please note our Allocation policy in relation to the possibility of being housed amongst Undergraduate students (predominantly 18yr olds) and also our Private Sector housing advice.

Couples and Students with families There are a small number of one and two bedroom self-contained self-catered flats within our accommodation portfolio and these are situated in our vibrant student villages. Students who fulfil the guarantee criteria in any of the previous student study types above and have a child, children or are a couple, can apply for a flat. Please see more information in our Allocation policy further on in this brochure.

Please see the off campus information further on in this brochure.

Insurance and Clearing full-time first year undergraduate students We run a Housing Waiting List for any full time first year applicants who go firm with the University after the Housing guarantee deadline date, and will always endeavour to offer University Managed accommodation to these students. Whilst accommodation cannot be guaranteed, it may be possible to arrange alternative or additional accommodation and we will also provide information and advice to help you secure accommodation in the Private Sector.

For those with multiple or complex needs, we strongly recommend that you contact the Disabilities and Learning Diversity Team in Student Services (+44 (0) 1962 827341) and also Student Housing Services as early as possible to discuss your needs. We will do our best to accommodate late applicants but cannot guarantee a room or a particular type of room if applications are made after the published deadline dates. If you are unsure whether information regarding additional requirements is relevant to you, please contact Student Housing Services.

Live in University Accommodation on campus (including self-contained Flats for families and couples)

Commute from your family home

Most first year students live in University accommodation on campus and you can find information on the various options available, our guarantees, how to apply, costs and our Allocation policy within this brochure.

If, during the year, you decide you want to investigate other options, you’d be very welcome to contact Student Housing Services to enquire about them and the availability of rooms in University Accommodation.

Our self-contained flats are located within our Student Villages and Halls of residence on campus, meaning you become part of our vibrant and thriving campus community from day one.

Information on travel with the University can be found on the University homepage by using the keyword search ‘Travel’.

These pages have information on the accommodation available and the link to the online application system. Advice and information is provided on each page of the application and the Student Housing Services team are on hand to answer any queries or solve any problems with this process. When making an application for accommodation the student has the chance to list their preference choices in order of which accommodation they would most like to secure. We encourage all students to apply as early as possible to have the best chance of securing a preference choice. We allocate on a first applied, first allocated basis in date order and we aim to offer students their preference choices. However, if a student’s preference choice isn’t available even where they apply by the deadline date, there is the possibility of being offered the next available room type which can include our off campus accommodation, accommodation with shared bathroom facilities and accommodation which is older and a lower cost when compared to our more recent developments such as Burma Road Student Village for example. Most of our accommodation is mixed-sex but you can request to live in a single-sex flat. This means that you would share a flat with only male or female students. We have a small number of singlesex flats in both standard and en suite accommodation. In these flats, residents are not permitted to have visitors of the opposite sex between 10pm and 10am. Although we cannot guarantee a room in single-sex accommodation, you will have the opportunity to request a single-sex flat when you make your preference choices during your online application and we will always do our best to offer this option.

Additional Requirement applicants Allocation of rooms may be based on needs as much as preference choices, and is subject to availability of suitable rooms. Evidence of medical needs is required and you will need to discuss them with both the Student Housing Services team and the Learning Diversity Team in Student Services (+ 44 (0) 1962 827341). Mature applicants We endeavour to assign accommodation areas across our entire portfolio to mature applicants and allocate these students together. We consider mature applicants to be 24years of age or above. Please note that once the accommodation areas for mature students are full, we offer the next available room which may be with residents aged 18 years or above. Postgraduate applicants There will be a proportion of accommodation across our entire portfolio for Postgraduate applicants and we will endeavour to allocate students together in the mature areas (over 24yrs). Please note that once these rooms are full we may not be able to accommodate you and will provide information and advice to help you secure accommodation in the Private Sector. Self-contained Flats (for families or couples) Students with this eligibility can apply for a flat at point of application as there is a flat option in the online system. Applying for this option means you won’t have other preference choices. We will normally allocate to families first then couples and apply the first applied, first allocated approach where possible. We do apply a level of needs-based assessment to these applications and all allocations are subject to availability of a suitable flat.

If you live in the local area you may choose to commute to University from your family home.

Live in University Managed Housing off campus Depending on demand each year, there may be spaces reserved in off campus properties on the University Managed House scheme for first year students. Please see the section further on in this brochure for more details - you can also find our guarantees, how to apply, costs and our Allocations policy within this brochure.

Live off campus in the Private Rented Sector (Private Landlord) You may choose to live in a shared house with friends, managed by a landlord or a letting agent, where you may sign a joint and several liability tenancy agreement. There are also a number of resident landlords who offer accommodation in their family home. This is known as lodgings and there is no formal tenancy for this type of housing. There is no formal application process for this option as you would source something suitable yourself directly with the Landlord or via Letting Agents. All private landlords registered with the University are able to advertise their properties on dedicated web pages and have provided evidence to the University that their properties

The University manages a number of properties off campus in Winchester all of which have obtained Winchester City Council accreditation approval. Properties range in size from 3 to 8 study bedrooms and come with varying facilities. Some have gardens while others have an off road parking space on a driveway. All have a washing machine and are furnished throughout. Some also have a tumble dryer and/or dishwasher and many properties have bedroom door locks for added peace of mind.

All heating, water, electricity, internet and basic possessions insurance costs are included in the residence fees.

Unlike many other private sector lets, students have individual licence agreements with the University meaning the residents deal directly with the University as their landlord, and report any maintenance issues or other concerns to the Off Campus Housing Team to take forward.

Balfour House was completed in 2014 and offers high quality 2 and 3 bedroom apartments in the Winnall area of the City. All study bedrooms have double beds and benefit from a linen and laundry service, a weekly cleaning service, workspace and TV as well as internal and external communal spaces, providing a student-friendly and very social place to live and study.

For non-first year students, applications are taken from groups and viewings can be arranged before committing to a property. When properties are reserved for first year students, rooms are allocated individually in the same way as for on campus accommodation.

More information and advice on renting in the Private Sector with Private Landlords can be obtained from Student Housing Services.

Catered Halls of Residence The catered Licence agreement covers the published academic year dates. Over the Christmas vacation a mandatory retainer fee is payable which entitles residents to leave belongings in their room while they move out. Over the Easter vacation no residence fees are payable and so residents must vacate, remove all belongings and hand back their keys. The rooms will then be available again for the third term. The ‘residence fee for full licence’ includes the nightly room rate, catering fees and Christmas retainer. Catering fees are based on a part-board basis of approximately 14 meals per week.
