How much does accommodation cost?

Accommodation fees depend on the type of room you have. We have a very wide variety of accommodation, and so the fees are varied too.

Fees are calculated using a number of factors including room size (larger rooms are, on average, an additional £5-£6 per week) whether you have shared or en-suite bathroom facilities, are self-catered or provide pre-paid dining options.

Your accommodation fees also include all utilities, internet and room insurance.
