Claredale is a 4-storey block of flats (please note there are no lifts) arranged around an internal courtyard with lockable front gates. There are 246 single study rooms which are grouped into 59 flats, with 2 – 7 bedrooms in each flat (the vast majority of flats have 4 bedrooms). Each room has wired and wireless internet access and each flat has shared cooking, shower and toilet facilities and a phone line for incoming and emergency service calls only. All flats are non-smoking.
The rooms within the flats are all centrally heated, fully-furnished and have lockable doors. Rooms vary in size and consequently we have different price bands to choose from. We also split the flats up into all-male, all-female and mixed. We also have some flats for mature/postgraduate students. We’ll do our best to accommodate your preference, but we cannot guarantee it.
As we mentioned, each flat has its own kitchen with cooker, microwave, kettle, toaster and fridge/freezer. You will need to bring your own pots and pans, cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery. Each bedroom is furnished with a bed, wardrobe, bedside cabinet, desk, chair and shelving. You will need to bring your own duvet, pillow and sheets. There is a TV aerial socket in each bedroom but you will need a TV licence for your own TV. Residents are responsible for keeping the communal areas of the flats clean as well as their own rooms. Vacuum cleaners can be hired and bin bags are free of charge.
There is a limited number of parking spaces. A £100 refundable deposit is required to secure a parking space.
Maintenance and caretaking duties are carried out by Leroy and Michael. The building is covered 24 hours a day by subwardens, who are fellow students, so if there is ever an emergency there is always somebody available to help.
