Band 2 shared bathroom, catered
Conveniently located near The Courtyard Bar and D Bar, with the green space of the Quiet Place on their doorstep, these blocks share bathroom facilities with other students in the same corridor. Most rooms also come with their own private washbasin.
While most of these rooms are in corridor-style layouts, a few are in houses at Eden's Court, a short walk away on Main Street.
Band 3 shared bathroom, self-catered
Most of these rooms are located in a courtyard, just over the road from the main college complex and a short walk from D Bar and Derwent reception. There are also a few houses at Eden's Court, a short walk away on Heslington Lane. Each house has its own kitchen and bathroom facilities, and each room has a private washbasin.
