‌Key points and facilities

Castle Leazes offers four different undergraduate room types: washbasin, catered washbasin, en suite, and accessible en suite. The rooms are spread out across a number of buildings, with four to eight floors in each building set around courtyards.

Self-catered residents at Castle Leazes are also able to purchase an opt-in residential catering package, meaning these students can benefit from the same breakfast and evening meal offer (Monday-Friday, during term time only) as provided to catered students.

We also have some wheelchair accessible rooms with adaptations that include: power-assisted doors, wheelchair accessible lifts, low-level kitchen work surfaces, accessible storage and wet rooms equipped with shower chairs, handrails and emergency pull cords. 

Please note: not all areas are accessible including some communal areas.
