Intro

Plymouth Cross House offers stylish student accommodation within easy walking distance to the University of Plymouth, Drake Circus and Plymouth Pavilions. The city has all the restaurants and bars you would expect from the ninth largest university in Britain. No need to catch the bus, the city centre is literally on your doorstep, with bars such as Walkabout, Slug and Lettuce and shopping centre Drake Circus within a 5 minutes walk.

Our student accommodation in Plymouth offers students the choice of spacious studios or modern shared flats. There is up to 100Mbps WiFi available throughout the building, as well as a communal dining area, onsite cinema room and games room.

Whether you prefer the privacy of a studio or sharing a flat with others your room will come with a large, comfortable bed, a study area, plenty of storage, and all en-suite bathrooms have been finished to an exceptional standard. Studios also come with their own modern, well-equipped kitchenette.

The University of Plymouth is ranked in the top 3% of degree-granting providers of higher education in the world, in the CWUR World University Rankings, and has more than 23,000 students. The city itself is soaked in a proud military history. A walk around The Hoe offers up the chance to check out views of Plymouth Sound and Drakes Island, and to see where Sir Francis Drake played bowls when the Spanish Armada made its way up the English Channel!

Students in the area flock to Plymouth Pavilions for regular live music gigs, and there are three bars run by the Student Union on the main University of Plymouth campus. Elsewhere Switch, on North Hill, is a lively venue where dancing into the wee hours is always on the cards, and OMG is one of the areas most instantly-recognisable nightclubs.

As for retail therapy, even the shops pay homage to Plymouths past, with the wonderfully-named Armada Centre and Drake Circus hosting independent and big-name stores, restaurants and cafes. The city centre is packed with a diverse range of outlets that meet every need.

Recycling

Recycling is one of the best ways for you to have a positive impact on the world in which we live. Recycling is important to both the natural environment and us. We must act fast as the amount of waste we create is increasing all the time.


Homes for students want to do our bit to protect the world, and were sure you want to do your bit too, so to make being eco-friendly easy for you weve provided recycling and refuse bins throughout your accommodation and we encourage all students to use the facilities provided to recycle waste where possible.


You should make sure that you empty packages completely and give them a quick rinse before you recycle them. Below you can find examples of what you can recycle and what goes in the different bins.


Be aware that if you put things in the wrong bin, it will contaminate the whole waste load which means that we cannot send that waste to be recycled. So, please take an extra couple of seconds to put things in the correct bin so we can help divert as much waste from going to landfill as possible.


Almost anything made of glass can be recycled, so make sure you put items like glass bottles and jars in the right bin and do not recycle broken glass or light bulbs. Anything that does not feature a recycling label must be put in the refuse bin. Other items that are not recyclable include: batteries, electrical appliances, kitchen waste, polystyrene, foam and sanitary products.

Plastics

Plastic cups and lids

Milk bottles
