Living Areas at Carrington

Students are grouped into "flouses” (a unique term to describe a floor/house). Each flouse has a House Tutor who resides in and oversees that specific area.

Each flouse is equipped with a kitchen space which includes basic appliances and gear to prepare hot drinks and snacks, as well as a refrigerator for perishable foods.  Cleaning and recycling of these kitchens is the responsibility of students living within these areas, and rosters will be drawn up by the House Tutor to ensure these tasks are completed.

Four of our kitchens also have full cooking facilities which you can use no matter where you live in the College. The kitchen offers cake packs to make birthday cakes for people within your flouse!

Milk for tea and coffee is also provided.


The ratio of bathrooms to students in each flouse is approximately 1 to 5, meaning you will never have to wait long to have a shower in the morning. All toilets and showers are located in individual units to ensure your privacy. Bathrooms are cleaned daily during the week by our fantastic team of cleaners!


We have placed washing machines and dryers in each flouse for your convenience. There are a selection of clothes lines and an airing room situated around the College.


The College is staffed 24/7, with the Head of College, Deputy Head of College and Assistant Residential Tutor living onsite, our House Tutors also live onsite. House Tutors complete evening duties, which are followed by contracted security on Thursday and Saturday nights. Students have access to a cellphone number that is monitored 24/7. Senior Management also liaises with the University's Campus Watch security team who are on duty at all times. In the case of an emergency, Senior Management can be phoned at anytime.
