What else do I need to know?
Although we offer accommodation to external guests that aren't students, our residences are slightly different to hotel accommodation. We don't offer room service or wake up calls, but all bedding and linen is provided (cost is included in room price) and you can receive a full refund up to 72 hours prior to check in.
Smoking is prohibited on all University grounds and inside any University buildings, including rooms. Residents and short-stay guests however, have access to designated smoking areas.
