Wentworth Blocks A-D are located in an idyllic peaceful location between the lake and the Walmgate Stray, an area of open fields. All rooms in blocks A to D are Premium En-suite rooms.
If you use a television in your room, you will need to purchase a Television Licence as this is not provided by the University. There is no guarantee that you will be able to get good TV reception.
Most blocks are made up of 8 flats, each with 6 bedrooms sharing 1 kitchen.
The day of the weekly kitchen clean will be publicised on your kitchen noticeboard. Please check the service level agreement below to see what you should be doing and what is the responsiblity of your cleaners.
If you do not maintain the kitchen to a reasonable standard, the cleaners may not be able to clean the kitchen and the flat will be fined. We recomend you & your flat mates all sign up to a rota to make sure all the daily tasks are done. Your tutors will help you with this and provide you with rotas for your noticeboards.
Colour coded recycling containers for paper, cardboard, glass, plastic and cans are provided in each kitchen with corresponding bins in the recycling bays outside each block. Information about what you can and cannot recycle is included in pg 18 of the Wentworth Handbook.
Please also watch the University's YouTube video about recycling:
You are responsible for cleaning your own room, but shower pods are cleaned once a month. Please check the service level agreement below to see what you should be doing and what is the responsiblity of your cleaners. The date of the monthly clean will be publicised on your notice boards.
There is a laundry room on-site in the Wentworth College nucleus building.
To use the machines you need to purchase a card from the machine in James College Reception at the Roger Kirk Centre. Cards cost £5 and you must use the correct change (5 x £1 coins). Your card will have £3.50 credit to use in the machines which should be enough for your first wash.
As well as the general computer room, available to all students, located on the ground floor of the college nucleus building (room W/036), you also have 24 hour access to a Graduate Only study space on the 2nd floor (room W/202).
This is located on the ground floor opposite the entrance to The Edge and is open to postgraduates 24 hours a day. The room contains 2 table tennis tables, a table football game, a TV and DVD player and also has a range of DVDs and games. Controls for the TV and Table tennis bats and balls can be signed out from the porter.
This common room located on the 1st floor provides a comfortable and quiet relaxing social space for all postgraduate students, and is open 24 hours a day.
The Wentworth common room is a shared space and is also used as the Staff Common Room.
Blocks A1, A2 and D4 are all designated Quiet blocks.
A limited number of Female Only flats are available for students with strong religous or cultural reasons for requiring single gender accommodation.
