Postgraduate Accommodation 2012-2013: Schedule of Rates
St Chadís College offers accommodation to postgraduate students engaged in full-time (taught or research) degrees. Accommodation comprises: some rooms in Main College, Epiphany House, Hallgarth Street and Trinity Hall, a self-contained property on the south side of the River Wear and within easy walking distance of Main College.
All rooms are offered for 50 weeks of the year. The basic period of occupancy is from Wednesday 26th September 2012 until Tuesday 10th September 2013 (except in the case of PGCE students whose basic period of occupancy will run Wednesday 26th September 2012 until Tuesday 3rd July 2013).
Students for whom their course does not tie in directly to these dates should contact the Postgraduate Director for advice on the availability of rooms. It may be, for example, that an early arrival can be accommodated in a different room to that designated for the full term of the let.
Main College provides numerous sporting, social, exercise, musical, welfare, administrative, computing and library facilities open to all postgraduates regardless of where they live. Trinity Hall mirrors several of these facilities for Trinity Hall residents only. You are strongly encouraged to visit the Collegeís website to find out more about the facilities the College provides to its postgraduates: www.dur.ac.uk/chads
Please note: there is an annual fee of £50 for postgraduate membership of St Chad's College.
Rooms in Main College are located on a dedicated postgraduate corridor and are offered on a part-catered let during undergraduate terms. During vacations, postgraduate students in these rooms cater for themselves. These rooms have shared bath/shower and toilet facilities.
Epiphany House, No 5 North Bailey
Opened for business in October 2007 after undergoing a major refurbishment programme, this grade II listed building extends the College's Postgraduate provision. In 2012/2013 a small number of rooms may be available in this building, on a part-catered let. A number of double en suite rooms for undergraduates are also located there.
This house is a four/five minute walk from the College's main site and houses five postgraduate students on a self-catered basis.
Rooms in Trinity Hall are offered on a self-catering basis with excellent shared kitchen and dining facilities on site. Virtually all rooms are en suite with shower, washbasin and toilet in each case. Shared laundry facilities are provided. There are three price bands for the en suite rooms according to the size of the rooms. In all cases, the rooms are well-proportioned with excellent character.
Postgraduates who live out and who live in the College residences at Trinity Hall and Hallgarth Street are encouraged to consider buying into meals in Main College during undergraduate term time. Meal tickets for individual lunches are priced at £3.00 per meal and for an evening meal at £4.00 per meal (2010 prices). These can be purchased individually at any time. However, postgraduates may consider buying a special meal deal which provides lunch and an evening meal five days a week for the 28 weeks of undergraduate term for £700 per annum (2009 price). NB: 2009 prices included by way of example only. 2011 prices will be posted as soon as they are confirmed.
