Other sections in Grizedale:
Grizedale College is home to 18 Townhouses, five houses containing en-suite accommodation; three blocks of standard flats and one block of single and double studios housing 605 students in total. For further information please see the main Accommodation Office.
The en-suite flats have six rooms (unless there is a dedicated disabled adapted room, which means there will be five rooms to a flat) and a communal kitchen, which has both soft seating and dining areas. A cleaning service is provided Mon-Fri during term-time however students are responsible for removing their own rubbish and recycling.
The standard rooms contain a vanity unit with wash basin within the room. There are two shower rooms and two toilets per flat, plus a large communal kitchen, all of which have been refurbished in the last few years.
There are no lifts/elevators in Grizedale accommodation, except in the studio block, so please bear this in mind when planning what to bring with you; as you may have to walk up lots of stairs with heavy suitcases.
Our students have created a short video about our accommodation.

Please note: We have a limited supply of bedding packs available to purchase on arrival. They do not fit the single studio beds.
As our beds are longer than the standard size; fitted sheets may not be suitable (unless purchased from a well-known Swedish store) or you are advised to bring unfitted sheets.
We recommend that you bring a good quality mattress protector with you (as a replacement mattress can be costly) these are included in the bedding packs which you can purchase in the college.
The following items are provided for community use:
For those sharing kitchen spaces: on average, there are two cupboards, one drawer and a freezer and fridge shelf available for personal storage.
Shower curtains are provided in all en-suite and shared wet rooms.
If you are using hair straighteners/tongs, then you are advised to bring a heatproof mat with you. A surge protected extension lead is also recommended as some of the mirrors are not close to a plug socket.
You will need to provide your own cooking equipment (pots, pans, cooking utensils, crockery and cutlery etc). A pan stand/trivet ( to prevent burns to worktops/tables/carpets) is also recommended.
