Points to consider

  • All halls of residence are strictly non smoking.
  • Halls are a large community of students of mixed ages, sexes and from different cultures and backgrounds - can be fun but can take some getting used to!
  • All hall fees include a meal provision equivalent to up to *10 meals per week (term time) - if you prefer to do all your own cooking you may prefer to live off campus.
  • You will be committed to taking a room for a full residential session and will have to pay for any periods you maybe away, including study tours.
  • The room is yours through the Christmas and Easter Breaks - we do not ask students to move out!
  • You may not have lectures every day and home may be close enough to go home every weekend. An alternative may be to live in lodgings off campus Mon-Fri.

The Student Accommodation Code

Code of Practice

Where you live whilst studying is a big part of being at university, which is why WUC has signed up to The Student Accommodation Code. The Code protects our students' rights to safe, good quality on campus accommodation, to ensure our students get the best out of their time living in residences. It outlines everything students can expect from our accommodation as well as their responsibilities. We are fully committed to providing a safe, comfortable living environment which will help support our students in leading a successful and enjoyable student life and The Student Accommodation Code underpins this commitment.
