ACCOMMODATION AND TOURS

3 ACCOMMODATION

AND TOURS

23


OPEN ACCOMMODATION With so much to see and do at our Open Day you’ll be spoilt for choice! To make things easier we run open accommodation which allows you to see as much or as little of our accommodation as you like - feel free to wander in and out at your leisure! Just head to the Tour and Accommodation Zone outside the Silberrad Student Centre where a member of staff will give you a handy campus map and direct you to our show flats. Once inside you can get a feel for the place and see which accommodation is right for you. Our friendly representatives will be waiting in each flat to answer any questions you have.

FAQ How much does accommodation cost, and what does it cover? We have some of the cheapest accommodation in the UK, starting at £79.93 a week. Our accommodation is self-catered and all-inclusive, meaning you don’t have to worry about bills! Check out pages 26-27 for the weekly costs of our different accommodation types. What’s included in my room and what do I need to bring? All our accommodation (en suite and nonen suite) is fully furnished with a bed, a wardrobe, a desk and chair, bookshelves, a bin and a lamp. You just need to bring bedding, towels, and a few items to make you feel at home; posters, rugs, a teddy bear - we won’t judge!

24

How many flatmates will I have? Our accommodation ranges from 4 rooms per flat to 16 rooms per flat, all with shared kitchen facilities. You can also choose to live in a single gender flat (all male or all female students). If you do not specify single gender, you will most likely be in a mixed gender flat. Do I need to move out over the holidays? Nope! Your accommodation contract lasts for the duration of the academic year (usually from the beginning of October to the end of June) so the room is yours for that period. Will my room be cleaned? Housekeeping staff will clean the communal areas once a week, but not individual rooms or bathrooms. You will be responsible for your own washing up. The kitchen rubbish will be collected daily.


OUR ROOMS

Our en suite accommodation includes South Courts, Meadows en suite, Houses, and the University Quays.*

Our non-ensuite accommodation includes the Towers (North and South), and Meadows townhouses.* *Typical layout of en suite and non-ensuite room. This may vary for each accommodation type. 25


South Courts Size: 1,218 rooms Cost per week: £139.51 4-12 rooms per flat, en suite facilities, some adapted rooms available

The Meadows Size: 228 townhouse rooms plus 420 flats with en suite rooms Cost per week: £135.80 and £143.36 respectively 12 rooms per townhouse with lounge/kitchen. 5-7 rooms per flat with shared kitchen

The Towers Size: 1,142 rooms Cost per week: £79.24 - £90.86 13-16 rooms per flat, shared showers and toilets 26


University Quays Size: 766 rooms Cost per week from: £128.17 7-8 rooms per flat, en suite facilities

The Houses Size: 267 rooms Cost per week: £126.37 4-6 rooms per flat, en suite facilities, some adapted rooms available

These figures show the current cost per week of our accommodation. It’s likely that our rental charges for 201819 will increase from these prices. We’ll publish the new rent charges on our website as soon as they are available. u
