Quiet Zone 2023-2024
The Quiet Zone is for Continuing Students only. New Students have their own booking events and areas.
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 continuing Post Graduate* (second year of course) 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 students who want such a living environment should apply.
Where possible we have selected naturally quieter locations on the Campus for The Quiet Zone . This includes Courtyard Halls in Birch (the tower) Alder, 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 the Expression of Interest and Orientation form.
* New Post Graduates have their own booking event and area which is also usually quiet but is not strictly in "The Quiet Zone".
