In March each year, the Accommodation Office hosts an Open House when each of the University’s undergraduate halls of residence is open to prospective students and their families. An informal day, it provides an opportunity for you to visit as many or as few of the halls as you wish, get a sense of their location, view facilities and study bedrooms, and chat with current residents. A free shuttle bus service is available to transport you between the three accommodation campuses.
In 2014 Open House will take place on Sunday, 16th March between 10.00am and 4.00pmOPEN HOUSE BROCHURE. We will also have copies on the day to pick up.
Prospective students are welcome to visit any of the University's halls throughout the year but you are advised to make prior appointments as occasionally staff may not be available to offer assistance or halls may be closed to visitors temporarily. Contact details of each hall can be found on their individual hall website. High quality videos featuring current residents and illustrating various aspects of life in halls can also be accessed in the Hall Life section of this website, including information on social life, pastoral care, types of facilities (catered/self-catered, en-suite/shared), locations etc.
