George Eliot Halls are on the northern side of the main campus. These very modern townhouses offer more space for relaxing and socialising than other halls, including a lounge area and a kitchen. There are two bathrooms per landing, so you’ll share with one other student. There are 624 rooms in total in George Eliot which includes undergraduate and postgraduate rooms.
Large bed for single occupancy in townhouses for between nine and 12 students with communal kitchen and lounge area. Bathrooms are shared, two to every four bedrooms.
