In the centre of our College we have an all-weather Astroturf facility, great for day-time recreation. We have a selection of equipment available for borrowing as well, from tennis rackets, basketballs, soccer and rugby balls, to cricket sets!

Linton Pool Room

Our dedicated pool table room is a hive of activity after meals as residents squeeze in a game or two before heading off for more study!

Dining Room

Our Dining Room is open from 7am to 11pm. Outside of meal times, it is used for a variety of purposes. Equipped with a projector screen and sound system, many of our College talks and events are held in this area. We also love host quiz nights, watch movies, and play the rugby on the big screen in this area! Students are welcome to study in the Dining Room throughout the day, and many pop in between meals for some toast, fresh fruit, or a hot chocolate.

Located in Stuart House the Stuart Lounge is one of Carrington's two large common rooms. With a wonderful outlook onto a woodland outdoor area this lounge has a full kitchen, including a dishwasher, and tends to become the 'home of baking' each year.
