Freeaccommodation is provided in a singleroom; en-suite rooms are availableon payment of an upgrade fee ofapproximately £35/week. Informationabout the Senior Member role, detailsof how to apply, and copies of theapplication form are available at
Need a chat?
April - June can be a stressful timewith coursework deadlines, exams,and preparing to leave the Hall and allyour friends at the end of the year. TheSenior Members and I are availableif you want to talk things thorough -anything at all - just ask.
Quiet during exams
Please be especially considerate ofyour neighbours over the next fewmonths and try to be quiet. Even if
your own exams have nished, others
will still have work to do. Think howannoyed you would feel if you werewoken up in the middle of the nightbefore your most important exam.
Talk to your neighbours and try toagree on quiet times. If you can’t reachagreement, or if there is a recurrentproblem, talk to a Senior Member.
Remember that other residentsmay want to sleep or study at differenttimes than you, and try to respect theirneeds for quiet time.
Noise travels further thanyou might think, so talk quietly incorridors; don’t let doors slam shut,and don’t run or shout in hallways orstairwells. This type of noise gives riseto more complaints than does loudmusic. Please keep noise down in thegarden.
If your neighbour knocks on yourdoor and asks you to quieten down, bepolite and try to help; you might be theone asking for quiet tomorrow!
Between 11 pm and 7 am you mustmake no noise audible from outsideyour room or the common rooms.
