Single gender accommodation means sharing a house/flat (not a room) with other students of the same gender. Please be aware in either male or female single gender accommodation guests (including overnight guests) may be of a different gender. Visiting staff members (cleaners, maintenance staff etc.) may also be of a different gender.
We aim to allocate students together who consider themselves to have a ‘quieter lifestyle’. Please note, we can’t guarantee a permanent quiet environment. Communal living will always involve some level of noise, including from outside the building. However by placing students requesting a quieter lifestyle together we hope to better meet the different expectations of our students.
In respect of noise, the Terms and Conditions of Residence require occupants:
- to show respect, at all times, for all persons living and/or working in the Hall or in the locality of the Hall and not to cause or do anything that is likely to cause a nuisance or annoyance to them.
- to keep noise at a level that does not interfere with the study, sleep or comfort of persons living and/or working in the Hall and, in particular, not to make or allow any loud noise (including but without limitation to televisions, playing music or musical instruments, talking loudly on the phone or playing video games) between 23.00 hours and 08.00 hours.
To see which halls have quieter lifestyle areas see pages 8-13 in the Accommodation Guide (PDF – 9.5 MB).
