Quiet Zone 2020-2021 (now fully subscribed for 2020/2021)

The Quiet Zone came about as a result of student feedback to the Residence Office. Many students want to live on Campus for their final year or as a Post Graduate and share with room mates who are in a similar situation. The ethos of The Quiet Zone is study focused, low alcohol, and low noise among like minded students. The Zone has been very successful over the last four  years and has grown from the initial 50 students to just over 100 students. The ethos is mainly student driven and student preserved. Only those student who want such a living environment should apply.

For Continuing Students and Continuing Postgraduate students and Continuing International Students: The Expression of Interest for Quiet Zone can be completed by clicking LINK  now closed and fully subscribed for 2020/2021 .(Open 7 February 2020 closed 26 February 2020).  

Where possible we have selected naturally quieter locations on the Campus for The Quiet Zone .  This includes Courtyard Halls in Birch (the tower), and Rye Hall Block B to give some diversification in room types.  

Please be advised that all students who are offered a room in The Quiet Zone are expected to respect the ethos of the zone as set out in this information and to attend the Quiet Zone Orientation. (previous residents of the QZ are exempt from the orientation).
