There are a lot of benefits to living in halls in your first year. You get to meet new people, there are social events you can attend, and it is hassle free because most of your living costs are included in your hall fees. This page gives you some information about what you can expect.
Our halls of residence are a supportive and safe environment. Our hall staff are experienced in making people feel welcome and at home. All of our halls have an on-site halls team to help and advise during the day. There is support available
on-site throughout the night too.
The University is situated in one of
the safest student areas in the country
according to research conducted by the Complete University Guide.
All rooms in our halls of residence have internet provided via a hardwired socket. Residents will be able to use their own PCs or laptops with an Ethernet cable to access email, internet, and intranet. For some Apple products (e.g. MacBook Air)
you may need to buy an adaptor.
The University also provides complimentary wifi through Eduroam on campuses and residential sites.
In Brookes-managed halls, wired internet is included in the rent cost. Slade Park is a third party hall which charges an additional annual sum for internet access.
All students who live in halls are provided with block contents insurance covering their time in halls. This is provided by Cover4Insurance and more information can be found
on their website. This cover can be extended if required.
Please note this information is not applicable to the Mews, Slade Park, Dorset House, Beech House, Sinnet Court, Canterbury House or the Windmill Road halls. If you are in one of these halls of residence, please contact the hall office directly
with any queries.
