Halls accommodation

Most students in their first year choose to live in a Student Hall of Residence. These provide a fun and safe introduction to independent living: all of our halls rooms offer ensuite bathrooms, and have bright and airy communal areas, with cooking, dining and social facilities.

Rooms are fully furnished to a modern standard, and you can stay for 50 weeks of the year. You will share your flat with other Plymouth College of Art students, and to top it off you also get a regular cleaner for the communal areas. There will be a flat screen television in the lounge and in some halls, even a pool table.
