Accommodation at University of Worcester

November 10, 2019 2 By Stanley Isaacs


I’m Judith Bick and I’m the deputy
residential services manager at the University of Worcester. One of my
responsibilities is to allocate our accommodation that we have here and make
sure that our students are happy.Once they’re living in our accommodation here
and also to help source and manage accommodation off campus for our
students. We have two sites: we have the city
centre campus then we have the St. John’s campus. We have five standards on the
St. John’s campus here ranging from our traditional accommodation which is our
cheapest accommodation, right the way through to our on-suite extra which is
our most expensive accommodation and that was built just a few years ago. We
also have ensuite extra and ensuite in the city center. We have some
accommodation which we class as our off-campus accommodation so we have some
things that are actually located within the city, ensuite accommodation mainly,
and they are close by to the city centre campus and also close to all of the
public transport links, bus station, train station, and also up to the city centre
if students have part-time jobs. We include in our rents all utilities,
broadband or equivalent access our internet system. We have cleaning Monday to
Friday at the communal areas. We have 24-hour security obviously, 24-hour
emergency maintenance. We have gym membership and we also have laundry
facility and we have the ensuite extra halls with the TV and the TV license
included. We have a number of accessible
rooms in our accommodation and mainly they’re available in our ensuite
accommodation in our ensuite extra. We have rooms on our ensuite extra, we
have at ground-floor rooms we also have rooms on higher floors, obviously they’re
accessible because the building does have a lift and those rooms are actually
kitted-out and some with larger beds, wet rooms, adjustable height, have
facilities in the bathroom for example and emergency pull cords as well so
that’s available actually in there once and our ensuite extra.
