West Downs Student Village

West Downs Student Village is located at another part of campus, the West Downs Quarter. Although separate, the West Downs and King Alfred Quarters are only a few hundred metres from each other and it takes around 10 minutes to walk from the heart of one to the other. Rooms are arranged in houses and flats of six to eight rooms. Within these flats there is a mixture of en suite and shared facility rooms. We also offer some one and two bedroom family flats at this location.

En suite rooms are single occupancy and feature their own shower, toilet and sink. Shared bathroom facility rooms are single occupancy and feature their own vanity unit (sink, mirror and cupboard). There are 2 separate showers and 2 separate toilets per house, and all shared bathrooms are cleaned by our domestic team. There are also a limited number of premium shared facilities rooms at West Downs Student Village, for those who wish to enjoy a more modern take on a student bedroom.

Residents have the benefit of a shop and laundry facilities on the campus. Furthermore, our new West Downs development will soon be completed, with residents being on the doorstep of fantastic+ new social learning spaces, quiet study spaces, a café, a food hall and a library.

St Elizabeth’s Hall / Beech Glade Hall

St Elizabeth’s Hall is a traditional hall of residence, rooms are arranged along communal corridors with shared bathrooms and kitchenettes at various points. The building is on the other side of the King Alfred Quarter to Queens and Burma Road, so many rooms offer great views across Winchester and the South Downs. All the rooms are larger than the average single study bedrooms as well, with each room including a vanity area with washbasin and mirror above.

As mentioned earlier, these halls feature kitchenettes instead of kitchens. This is because St Elizabeth’s is catered accommodation. When living here you will receive a weekly catering allowance on your campus card. Students are free to spend the allowance as they wish, the allowance should be able to cover approximately 14 meals a week from any University managed outlet.

Is there any security for these houses?

Site Stewards are the University security officers and are based at both the West Downs and King Alfred Quarters. They are here to ensure the security of the University, and they help with unwanted visitors and noise. They are also available to give security advice and out-of-hours pastoral advice. All site stewards are first aid trained and can facilitate access to our buildings by the emergency services. Our Police liaison officer can also provide advice to students.
Do we clean the flats?

The University’s Campus Management team visit all on campus residences regularly and clean communal and shared facilities (toilet and shower) areas. They won’t clean rooms or en suites and will clean the surfaces and floors in the kitchens. They will also hoover corridors.
