At Stratford-upon-Avon College we help all our students to find a secure and happy place to live while they study with us.

On-Campus Accommodation

257 rooms, 244 single and 13 double

These purpose-built apartments are managed in association with Sanctuary Student Homes.

Students live in apartments of no more than six people. Each student has their own private bedroom with an en-suite shower room (complete with shower, hand basin and toilet). Each bedroom is furnished with a bed, bedside table, desk, chair, shelving and wardrobe. Students also have internet access in their rooms. There is a communal kitchen and living area in each apartment. There is 24 hour security and CCTV in operation and all facilities are within easy walking distance of the classrooms and other college buildings.

All utility bills and internet access is included in the accommodation fees. Sanctuary Student Homes provides a TV licence for the television set in the living area of the flat. Students can choose to have a television set (or TV viewing equipment) in their bedrooms; however, students are responsible for their own TV licence should they wish to have a television in their room.

Please be advised that interest in the campus accommodation is extremely high and places are offered to students who have a confirmed place on their chosen course on a first come, first served basis.

Student Homestay

Students have their own study bedroom and will share bathroom and other facilities with their home stay provider (also known as their ‘host’). Heating and electricity are included and students will have the use of a washing machine for their laundry.

Families in Britain may be very different to families in other countries. Students may find that they are living with a family where both parents work full-time and also have children. Many home stay providers are older people whose children have already left home. As the United Kingdom is a nation of animal lovers, it is common for households to have a family pet, the most popular being cats and dogs. Naturally, your host will do their very best to make you feel welcome, but things will feel strange at first – just as they would if you were living in campus accommodation or in privately rented accommodation. The important thing is to be ‘open’ to the new culture. Remember to be considerate and sensitive to any house rules that your host may have.

The Accommodation Office personally inspects all of the home stay providers to ensure that they are suitable and all home stay providers have undergone an enhanced DBS check (Disclosure & Barring Service check).

Smoking is only permitted with the prior agreement of your home stay provider, so please ensure that you observe any restrictions with regards to where you are allowed to smoke.
