Our Accommodation 

St Hild and St Bede will be moving to Rushford Court for academic year 2024/25 on a self-catered basis.

Work began on 7 August 2023, which will see the restored Victorian hospital of Rushford Court being upgraded to provide student and staff facilities including College staff offices, welfare, and study spaces. Building work will also deliver a new College Heart building which will house common rooms, study areas, and a café bar in addition to the facilities already on offer at the 358 room property.

This purpose-built student accommodation, within walking distance of the city centre, provides students with an excellent location and fantastic facilities.
