FAMILY HOUSING

Our Family Housing complex is just a two or three minute walk from the main teaching buildings and features one, two and three-bedroom apartments spread across three separate blocks. Furnished flats are available, and normally include a cooker, refrigerator, and basic furniture. Washing facilities are not provided in Family Housing.  Most of these flats are located in the Woodlands area of the campus, about 5 minutes’ walk across campus from the main administration and teaching buildings, the Church Centre and Newbold Primary School. There are 3 flat options available for students:

  • 1 bedroom
  • 2 bedroom
  • 3 bedroom

The College’s family housing accommodation varies in age and facilities. Normally the flats are self-contained units and each is provided with a cooker, a refrigerator and basic furniture such as beds, cupboards, a sofa, chairs, a table and a study desk. You will need to provide your own washing machine.

  • Some flats are furnished
  • Fridge provided
  • No washing facilities. You must supply your own washing machine.

Flats are allocated according to a priority system based on course of study, size of family and sponsorship. Sponsored postgraduate students from one of the countries in the Trans-European Division of the Seventh-day Adventist Church are given highest priority, followed by sponsored undergraduate students, non-sponsored students and non-degree students.

We recommend that you add your name to the waiting list as soon as possible as it is usually quite considerable.
