Nursing and Midwifery students

One block of this hall is for undergraduate students and nursing/midwifery students.

Quiet Environment

In 2018/19 we will designate a few corridors in this hall as suitable for students who prefer a quieter environment. These corridors may be particularly suitable to mature students and others who do not want to share their living space with students of a more boisterous and lively nature.

We will do our best to indicate to all residents in these corridors that we expect a quieter environment but all residents should appreciate that no form of communal living is entirely silent and it is very difficult to define ‘quiet’. It will always be noisier than living in your own home. In addition it is not always possible to regulate the amount of noise coming from other areas of the hall and outside the hall which may be beyond our control.
