Student Accommodation

We understand that accommodation is an important factor when choosing to study away from home and we try to ensure that the accommodation we provide is of the highest standard for you to be able to learn in a safe, secure and enjoyable environment.

In March 2015 Bridgwater College’s residential provision was inspected by Ofsted and awarded Outstanding in all categories. Read more.

Living in on-site accommodation is a brilliant way of meeting new friends and gaining confidence and independence. For the majority of our students this will be their first time away from home and we will therefore make every effort to support students in their transition and make their experience as easy as possible.

Residential learners spoken to, loved their residential experience. They thoroughly enjoyed the vast range of activities that are on offer and see these not only as fun but an opportunity to try new things.

Any student studying full-time has the opportunity to apply for accommodation. Priority is given to students who study a land-based subject, other specialised courses, those who live outside a 30 mile radius of the campus and higher education students.

The on-site accommodation comprises 116 rooms, the majority of which are single but we do also have a limited amount of shared accommodation available. Rooms are situated across our Cannington Centre. Students are housed dependant on their age and whether they are studying further or higher education; both catered and self-catering options are available for Over 18 students. For Under 18 students, accommodation costs include a meal card.

Dartmoor Hall

The new accommodation block was completed and ready for use in September 2014 for full-time students studying at the College. Over 18s in further and higher education can stay there seven days a week, even during half term, and will have the option of a meal card for use in the on-site restaurant from Monday to Friday.

Dartmoor Hall consists of 25 bedrooms, all en-suite with queen-sized beds, a desk study area, and wardrobe and drawer space. There will also be a large communal area with a wide-screen TV, as well as a dining area and full catering facilities. Free Wi-fi is available throughout the building which also includes locker rooms, a changing area, laundry room, bike storage and free on-site parking.

Residential learners develop into effective members of their immediate and wider community. This derives from the college community ethos and developing tolerance and understanding of those they come into contact with.
