Students’ can choose either to live on campus or off campus during their four-month stay in the UK, studying at the University of Roehampton.
If students’ choose to live on campus, they will be placed in accommodation at the University of Roehampton in Roehampton, London.At this stage we cannot detail which exact location on campus students’ will be staying in but the accommodation fees will range between an estimated £124.95 Sterling (€ 155.173 EUR*) per week and you will also be required to pay a deposit of £250 Sterling (€ 310.470 EUR*) on acceptance of the room.
*prices subject to change. These fees include:• water, electricity and heating• internet connection and usage• room furniture varies but all rooms include a single bed, mattress, wardrobe, desk, chair, shelving and sink• kitchen equipment includes cooker/stove, microwave, fridge, freezer, kettle, toaster and food storage space.
The rates are low in comparison to local accommodation outside campus which students will have to take responsibility for finding themselves.
This £250 deposit will be refunded in full at the end of the contract, providing there are no damages or charges incurred during your stay.
Accommodation payment depends on whether students are receiving a category A or category B scholarship or are self funded.
Category A Scholarship students:Students receiving a Category A Erasmus Mundus scholarship will have their accommodation fees paid by the Finance department at the University of Roehampton, out of their scholarship costs. Students will receive the appropriate amount of scholarship minus these costs. I.e. the amount of scholarship money received per month will be reduced accordingly.
Category B Scholarships and self-funded students:Students receiving a Category B Erasmus Mundus scholarship or self-funded students will be required to apply online for accommodation.Once you have applied online you will then be sent an offer of a room, and will have seven days to accept and pay the deposit of £250 Sterling which will be deducted straight away on acceptance of the room. Online payment will be set up, and on your arrival the accommodation fees will be deducted. If you are unable to pay the fees straight away, a payment plan can be arranged with the accommodation finance department but you must contact them as soon as possible.
The Roehampton campus is a safe place to live, but you should take all the usual precautions to safeguard your belongings and person. Make sure you lock your door when away from your room, do not leave personal possessions unsecured and remember to keep your room key unlabelled and in a safe place. Security staff are present on campus 24 hours a day and have a special emergency extension (3333) should you need to reach them urgently.
All accommodation at the University of Roehampton is self catered and you have access to a shared kitchen. You will be taken to the nearest supermarket in the first few days of your arrival, to become familiar with where to purchase food supplies locally.
You will also be provided with a kitchen equipment pack, which is yours to keep and take with you to Norway and the Czech Republic.Off campus
Students choosing to live off campus will need to make their own arrangements by booking and paying for off-campus accommodation (private rentals).
There are two types of accommodation available depending on
the length of stay. Students will be reserved rooms in the Hotel Crystal,
although those staying to do their dissertations will be reserved accommodation
at the Jinonice Campus.
Hotel Crystal serves Charles University as an accommodation,
conference, and teaching centre. It has been the venue of a number of
international congresses, conferences, symposia and management courses.
Accommodation in the hotel costs €TBC a night (breakfast and
internet access included); students can share double room for €TBC a night.
These prices are specially discounted for Erasmus Mundus students and are
favourable compared to the prices of other decent accommodation in Prague.
Students pay for the accommodation themselves. We will need to know about any
changes in booking of the rooms beforehand to avoid charges by the hotel. If
you would like to switch from single to double rooms, please contact the hotel.
