We want to provide comfortable, safe and fairly priced accommodation for our first-year undergraduate students. Here's our approach to achieving this:
The College is committed to providing comfortable, safe, fairly priced accommodation within a reasonable distance for all of our first-year undergraduates. This is explained in detail in our First Year Accommodation Strategy.
We see our approach towards accommodation as being underpinned by four main principles:
- We wish to own and self-manage all of our halls. This allows us to have the kind of direct oversight needed to ensure our students are receiving the highest quality at a fair price.
- We aim to offer a range of rooms available at a competitive price compared with similiar Universities and at a rate far lower than the private sector.
- In order to provide a system that is fair to students both within and outside of College accommodation, we don't believe we should be making a profit or a loss on our halls. This is why we choose a balanced 'break-even model'.
- We only want to contract our students during periods they actually need accommodation. This is why we offer 38-39 week contracts.
