Further Education
Live with Us

Student life doesn't have to end with your last lecture of the day - not if you're staying in one of our purpose-built rooms at the Hadlow campus.

Not many colleges can offer accommodation for students aged 16+.  However, due to the subjects that you'll be studying with us, sometimes it is the best way to experience the breadth of what we can offer.

For our Further Education students, we have 160 rooms located within the Student Village set in the heart of the beautiful Hadlow campus.  These are arranged in single-sex blocks and comprise single bedrooms with wash-basins and a fully equipped communal kitchen/dining area.  Free wi-fi is available throughout all blocks.

All of our accommodation is offered on a half-board basis which includes breakfast and a choice of either lunch or evening meal.  At weekends, breakfast is provided and students can buy lunch if they wish.  All meals are served on-site in the College restaurant which promotes healthy eating, provides a variety of options for a balanced diet and caters for all dietary requirements.

Students living in residential accommodation benefit from our experienced Student Support Team, available at all times day or night. They will guide and support you in personal matters and future planning. This also includes the Student Support Team working closely with the Curriculum Teams to help you stay on track with your course and help you achieve your educational goals. 

The Cost of Accommodation

Residential fees for 2016/17 academic year are £125 per week for a 37 week let.

Further Education students may be eligible to apply for financial assistance direct from the College through the Residential Bursary Fund (RBF).  Awards from the RBF will cover the cost of 80% of the residential fees.  Financial assistance is awarded according to household income and to qualify, it must be less than £29,000 (gross per annum).  To apply for assistance through the RBF, students must complete a RBF application form which is automatically sent to all students once they have accepted the offer of a place from May onwards.

Applying for Accommodation

As soon as you have accepted your place with us, the Admissions Team will send you all the information you need to apply - this is usually sent out around May.  Confirmation of your room allocation will be sent from July.

Since the demand for accommodation is often quite high, we recommend that you return the forms to us as soon as you can.  All full-time students are eligible to apply for accommodation, however preference is given to those who live a considerable distance from the College. In addition, course hours are taken into consideration, particularly for those courses that have early morning or late practical duties. Rooms are allocated in a priority order and if over-subscribed, we may have to place some students on a waiting list. We will also direct our adult students to alternative off-site accommodation if necessary.
