Furness accommodation blocks

Furness Accommodation

We offer a mix of ensuite rooms and bedrooms with shared bathrooms in Furness.

Our accommodation sits above and to the east of the main college building, and the houses are named after parts of the Furness region in the Lake District.

The Furness Perimeter blocks were built in 1992 and most recently refurbished in 2022/23. All 190 bedrooms have washbasin/vanity units in them, with students sharing WC/shower and kitchen facilities. These room are located next to the perimeter road across five houses, named Bardsea, Greenodd, Torver, Wetherlam and Brantwood.

Our ensuite accommodation was built in 2006 and offers 347 bed spaces across four houses, named Pennington, Colton, Aldingham and Hawkshead.

In 2023 the third floor of the Furness Main building (above the college facilities) was converted into student accommodation, providing another 60 bed spaces for Furness students. The seven cluster flats are larger than those of the older blocks, with 7-11 sharing WC/shower rooms and a spacious kitchen/dining/lounge area.
