How it works
We provide all bedding and linen, and – bonus! – cleaning is included. There’s free wi-fi, while kitchens are fitted with basic cooking packs and have fridges, microwaves and ovens.
We don’t offer room service or wake-up calls but there’s heaps of other benefits, including the opportunity to meet other students undertaking similar placements. But don’t just take our word for it – hear from some students who’ve used this accommodation during their placements:
Zoe: I chose to live on campus during placement for a multitude of reasons. It was fairly central, felt safe, the rooms were super-comfortable and it was very well priced for the amount of time I needed to stay and amenities that I required.
Harriet: It’s a fun experience living on campus, giving you a taste of the ‘Resi’ lifestyle, and there is a good chance you will bump into and meet other students also completing placement while you are there!
