Further Education Accommodation :: Bishop Burton College

Further Education Accommodation

Living in one of our 14 halls of residence is a great way to meet people, make friends and enjoy the whole Bishop Burton College experience.

The accommodation is provided throughout the academic year but does not include college holidays.

We provide a team of wardens who work to support students out of regular college hours. All halls have shared kitchen facilities which include a fridge, kettle, toaster and microwave. 

We take the care and safeguarding of our students seriously. We work to the Further Education Accommodation National Minimum Standards to safeguard and promote the welfare of young people under 18 who reside on campus. 

Financial support may be available to assist in the payment of residential fees for full-time Further Education students who wish to live in campus accommodation. Applications should be made to the college. Bursaries are allocated following a financial assessment process. Find out more about the Residential Bursary.

Rated Outstanding by Ofsted for Care Standards

In our last Ofsted inspection in October 2018, the care and support given to our students was rated as ‘outstanding’.

Inspectors found students living on campus at college “are happy, dedicated to their courses, make excellent progress and are full of praise for the college and its staff”.

The ‘social care common inspection framework’ visit found;

  • Bishop Burton is a friendly, safe and secure place to be
  • Students have excellent relationships with the staff and each other
  • The staff are a cohesive team that nurtures, encourages and advises students in many different ways to help them succeed
