Prospective and Current students with specific housing requirements should make early contact with the College’s Disability & Dyslexia Service and Accommodation Services to discuss any specific support needs.
Applicants indicating special housing requirements (pdf, 537KB) are directed to complete either a Self Assessment Form (medical) (pdf, 157KB) or a Personal Statement Form (non medical) (pdf, 129KB) in liaison with their appropriate professional support. Forms must be returned to Accommodation Services at the time of application.
As far as possible, the College attempts to accommodate students with disabilities in suitable residences. Not all residences will be suitable for all applicants and specialist disability advice and support is available from the Disability & Dyslexia Service.
Relevant supporting documentation such as a medical certificate, doctor's letter etc. must be provided. Failure to provide this may delay the assessment and affect the outcome.
It may be beneficial for the applicant to attend an interview to discuss their requirements.
Applicants with any special dietary needs who wish to apply to a catered residence should discuss this with the Residence Manager in advance; special diets cannot usually be catered for.
It may not be possible to reconsider an allocation of accommodation on the basis of a late notification.
