For the 2020-21 academic year, our houses are going to need to comply with new Government minimum room size regulations.
These regulations state that single occupancy rooms must be at least 6.51 sqm in size. All our houses have one room smaller than that size, so we’re going to be doing some internal renovation work over the summer of 2020 to make sure they all comply.
This work will involve moving some partition walls relocating some fire doors. We’re also going to take the opportunity to move some sockets and radiators so they work with the new room layouts.
The new rooms will also benefit from under-bed storage, custom shelving units and new LED lighting.
None of the communal areas (kitchen, lounge, bathroom) will be affected by this work, and we’re not planning any changes to the ground floor bedrooms.
If you’d like to know more about the planned work, and how it may affect you, feel free to get in touch using the details on our contact page.
