If you live more than 15 miles from college on a difficult transport route, you might be interested in the high-quality, Ofsted rated ‘Outstanding’ accommodation facilities we have available on our Broomfield Hall campus.
Accommodation is available from Monday – Friday, term time only and comprises fully-furnished single study bedrooms in hostels of ten rooms – five to a floor.
Each hostel has a kitchen/lounge area, each floor has toilets and bath/shower rooms, and each bedroom has a vanity unit. Free wi-fi is available and there are a number of laptops available for loan too.
Residential Wardens are on duty in the evening and overnight for support, with the Residential & Welfare Manager and a day warden being the named contact for residential issues in the day.
You are required to provide your own bed linen, pillows and kitchen utensils.
For under 18 students, accommodation is provided from 5pm Sunday evening through to 6pm on Friday evening; weekend accommodation can be arranged on payment of additional fees for over 18 students ONLY by prior arrangement with our Residential & Welfare Manager.
You will take your meals in the main cafeteria. An £11 per day meal allowance – allowing for three meals plus snacks – is included in the accommodation cost.
Recreational facilities are available in the Students’ Union, with sports facilities such as the gym and climbing wall open at given times and/or by arrangement. Off-campus visits to the supermarket, bowling alley, roller skating rink, trampolining park etc are also arranged on a regular basis.
Accommodation fees for 2018/19 are £4,500 for an under 18 student for the whole academic year, including the £11 per day meal allowance. Over 18 students wishing to stay for weekends will be given a quote on application based on the length of their course. A £200 damage deposit is required to secure the room.
If your annual disposable household income is below £25,000, you may be eligible for a Residential Bursary.
Full details of the support and a breakdown of payments will be provided after we have received your bursary application. You may also be entitled to further help from the Discretionary Learner Support Fund.

We are treated as adults and it is great to get more independence. But there is always someone to turn to if you have a problem and I always feel very safe here.

It’s like one big family everybody's very supportive and friendly. There are always plenty of activities to do to keep you occupied.

I like living in halls as you can meet lifelong friends and enjoy really good experiences including lambing, sports and rock climbing. All the Wardens are very supportive and I always feel safe.

I found out about the Academy but there was no way I could travel here every day so the accommodation provided is ideal.
I come back either on a Sunday night or first thing Monday morning and then go home on Friday afternoon so it is the best of both worlds.
We have single rooms so you can have your own privacy but it is great to meet up with people on other courses in the evenings and I enjoy heading back up to the golf range to get in some extra practice.
Our support for residential learners was graded ‘outstanding’ by Ofsted in 2018
