Halls of residence Rose Bruford College does not have its own halls of residence. But we work to assist all UK and international students in search of affordable housing close to the campus. Many first-year students can often make arrangements to take accommodations in a local university hall of residence, such as in nearby Avery Hill, owned by the University of Greenwich, paying a rate set by Greenwich. The halls are a 20-minute walk from the College and are located on a convenient bus route. Rooms are allocated on a strict needs and geographical basis and Rose Bruford College works to arrange a set number of rooms each year on behalf of our students. We also work with other local student providers to try and secure more space in other halls of residence. The College has previously been able to provide fully accessible accommodation for disabled students on the Avery Hill campus of the University of Greenwich . However this arrangement is negotiated on an annual basis and therefore the College cannot guarantee that fully accessible accommodation will be available. If you have any accomodation requirements related to a disability or medical condition please contact Ros Platton, Disability Adviser on 020 8308 2610 or email:
Making your own arrangements For second and third-year students, postgraduate students and those not requiring a halls place in the first year, we provide students with information about local contracts, deposits and procedures, as well as providing an accommodation search facility for private rented accommodation and lodgings. For information on external accommodation see www.brufordstudentpad.co.uk. Private accommodation Many second and third year students rent houses and flats in the local area. These can cost £80–90 per week, per person, plus bills and the contract can run for between 6 and 12 months, depending on the individual property. Visit www.brufordstudentpad.co.uk to find out more. For private landlords who are interested in letting private properties to our students via studentpad at a cost of £45 per property, please download our Code of Standards, application form, property inventory and landlords checklist from the link on the right. If you are happy to proceed following acceptance of our terms and conditions payments can be made via our online store http://store.bruford.ac.uk/Lodgings Some people have one or two rooms available to rent in their house or flat, and are happy to offer students a bedroom and use of shared facilities. Costs vary according to the individual landlord/lady and many of the lodgings available to our students have been used by Rose Bruford for some time. Such strong bonds mean that these families offer a unique experience that may be especially appealing to students who require slightly higher levels of support or who do not feel they are ready for independent living.
Rose Bruford College has a dedicated Student Advisor able to answer any queries you may have about accommodation.+44 (0)20 8308 2600
