A selection of five- and six-bedroom flats with single en suite rooms and a shared kitchen/lounge area which are ideal for first-year undergraduate students making new friends.  All flats have undergone recent refurbishment and offer stylish refrigerators, comfortable sofas and include a flat-screen TV complete with Freeview and TV licence.

For families, we offer a selection of two and three-bedroom flats for students with dependent children.  The flats are fully furnished with the addition of a washing machine.  In the lounge, there are telephone points and Sky (subject to subscription) and Freeview TV connection but students must provide their own TV and licence.
