Pros & Cons of the Young Adult Summer Residence
- There are lots of independent students living there, so it is a sociable place to live.
- You will be living with people from lots of different countries.
- All bedrooms are fully en suite (no homestays are).
- It’s right near the city centre, with really good access to the shopping area and lively harbourside.
- You will have more independence but still be in a very safe, cared-for environment with staff from the school and the residence there 24 hours to look after you. This is a good way to experience independent living while still being very well looked after and supported.
- There are great communal facilities which you can enjoy and where you can meet other students. There is a large student common room with pool table, table football, large-screen TV, table tennis and sofas.
- Secure access and on-site service team available.
- We provide breakfast and dinner 7 days per week. You will also be able to prepare your own food in your flat kitchen whenever you want – something not normally possible in homestays.
- You will be living with lots of other students, so there will be rules to follow. You will have to deal with rules about noise, curfews, smoking, etc.
- You will need to be back in your flat by 22:30 from Sunday to Thursday, and by 23:00 on Friday and Saturdays.
- You will have to share the kitchen space with other students, who might not be as clean and tidy as you would like them to be.
- The residence is not a social area of the school. If you have a visitor, they are only allowed in the communal games and TV areas and they must leave by 22:00. They cannot visit your flats. You must also tell the Residence Manager if you have a visitor inside the residence.
- You will have to wash all your laundry yourself (except sheets) but the Residence Manager is there to help you.
- It is a 25-minute walk to the school.
- There will be less contact with native English speakers compared to living with a homestay.
