Marris House has 192 self-catered washbasin rooms in flats. Each flat is shared by six students, and has two shower rooms and toilets. There's an attractive open-plan living area where you can relax with your flatmates after a hard day of study. We give you a Crockery Pack (PDF: 33KB) to help get you started.

It's just a seven to 10 minute walk from Marris House to Castle Leazes, so you can choose to buy their catered package during term time - save time shopping, cooking and washing up! Just complete the Catered Package Opt-in.

Building work will be ongoing throughout the academic year on a site adjacent to Marris House which may cause some disturbance to residents.
