While we provide some kitchen appliances, we do suggest each tenant brings their own crockery, cutlery and other kitchen utensils. Upon arrival, most students living in shared flats arrange with their flatmates to buy some communal items - we recommend this as a cheaper option which would also avoid cluttering the kitchen with multiple items.

For a full list of what we advise you to bring, check out your student handbook. If you are unable to bring certain items with you, dont panic there are plenty of shops close by where you can find the things you need.

St Lawrence House is the exception, with a limited amount of parking available.  Please contact site for costs and availability.

No, you cannot smoke in either your room or the communal areas of your flats. Smoking is a fire hazard and is forbidden in flats on all Property Management sites. There are designated smoking areas in every building which you are welcome to use.

As a tenant of an Property Management site you are more than welcome to invite guests to your accommodation. If your guest is staying overnight please let a staff member at your accommodation know. We also suggest that if you do invite guests be mindful of your flatmates: let them know before your guests arrive, and ensure you still comply with site rules regarding noise in the flat. Moreover, remember that as a tenant of an Property Management site you are responsible for the behaviour and actions of your guests.


Can I swap rooms?

It may be possible to change your room after you have moved in - we suggest you get in touch with your accommodation team on site, over the phone or through email.
