To accommodate as many freshers as we can, some students will be asked to share on a temporary basis. We try to minimise the amount of time you will share for. As soon as we can we move those who are sharing into their own rooms.

Temporary shared rooms have bunk beds but otherwise are as standard rooms with desk and chair, wardrobe and shelves.
