All Pre-Uni Students will be staying at Grant House, Pollock Halls of Residence with catered accommodation.

Check-in date is 09/07/2022 and the check-out is 23/07/2022. Two Resident Assistants will be staying within the accommodation for the entirety of the course ensuring students have a safe and enjoyable experience.

They will make sure students arrive and depart safely, help them settle in, check on everyone's well-being, and act as a first point of contact for any queries or concerns. They may also accompany students on some planned social activities.




Please note, Pre-University students will have catered accommodation provided as standard, and this is included in the course fee.

Useful Information:


  • Bedding is provided and this comprises bed sheet, duvet, duvet cover, pillow and pillowcase (towels are not included).
  • Catered accommodation includes breakfast, served from 07:30 to 10:00, and dinner, served from 18:00 to 20:00.
