“The apartments are warm, inviting and spacious, and provided me with 5 instant friends.” Pravin, 19


City College comprises 37 apartments, mostly with 6 bedrooms and a few with 4 or 5 bedrooms. Our apartments and bedrooms are safe, warm and comfortable. Each apartment also has a kitchen/lounge area where residents socialise, relax and may prepare snack meals. There are options for residents to state a preference for mixed, single-sex or alcohol-free apartments.

Residents often like to personalise their room. Within common sense limits we encourage and support room personalisation efforts. We do ask that all residents observe fire and life safety standards for the safety of themselves and of other residents and guests.
