Each year, 400 students make their home in our on-site accommodation. Ofsted has once again rated our residential provision as OUTSTANDING at our latest inspection in May 2018. Inspectors praised the college and its residential team saying: “The residential students live in an inclusive and supportive community which enriches their experiences and positively influences their development”. Students come from all over the UK and the South – so whether you’re from Kent, Essex, Sussex, Surrey, Berkshire or much further afield you’ll find a friendly and welcoming term time home at Sparsholt.

Applications for accommodation will form part of the registration process.

  • College Accommodation

    We offer students a range of en-suite and shared facilities, either self-catered or with an inclusive meal package. There’s an on-site laundry so you won’t run out of clean clothes and our shop ensures your essential groceries are close by.

    Our 24-hour team of wardens are supported by an activities officer, so there are always plenty of friendly faces to look out for you. We provide you with a safe and supportive environment to develop your independence and dedicate your time to studying and socialising.

  • Accommodation - Help Towards Costs

    The College’s Residential Bursary can help students who need to live on site because they are not on a travel route to reduce their accommodation costs as well as being able to pay the remaining balance on a monthly basis. As a general rule, to qualify you need to be living in college or rented accommodation and to not have similar local provision within 15 miles of your home. For example, if you are a 16 year old and your household income is under £32,960*, you could receive a discount of up to £3,862 on accommodation costs – or up to £4,377 if your household income is under £25,750.

    Help towards costs is available if your household income is below £32,960. The income threshold of £32,960 is increased by £1,648 for each dependent child living in the same house as the bursary applicant.

    The balance of accommodation costs can be split over 10 monthly payments.
