Students occupy the rooms from October through to July (and pay the rent accordingly), including the Christmas and Easter vacations.
These lets are only available for returning students (e.g. those that lived in Goodricke College in their first year).
These lets permit students to remain in University accommodation for the entire academic year (October to September). Lets of this length are likely to suit undergraduate students from overseas, postgraduate students or those studying nursing at undergraduate level.
Please note that 51 week lets continue throughout the summer, even though undergraduate students will have finished their courses for the academic year.

Students wishing to vacate should inform either the Accommodation Office or the College Administrator, Sarah Hay, and provide details of the student they have found to take on the remainder of the contract. The University then reserves the right to nominate a replacement and has up to one week in which to do so.
