‌Key points and facilities

There are 2 room options available at Grand Hotel – en suite, and deluxe/premium en suite rooms. The rooms are not located in flats but rather on corridors across 3 floors, with 2 – 3 kitchens and lounges per floor. This means that, on average, 6 – 10 people share a kitchen/lounge area. As the Grand Hotel is located right on campus, there is no car parking or bike storage available.

We take the safety of our students very seriously and Estates Security Officers patrol our accommodation to ensure your peace of mind, along with a phone entry system outisde the building to ensure only those given access can come into the building.

Facilities include:
  • WiFi
  • on-site laundrette
  • communal TV (licence included*)

* If you bring your own TV or watch using a personal electronic device, you will need to purchase your own licence.
