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.

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 senior student residents and 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. Read our Residential Accommodation Policy in full

Accommodation - Help Towards Costs
A residential bursary to help with accommodation costs is available for some students. Students should be studying on a full time designated specialist course and live in a household with an income below £32,000 (for academic year 2018/2019) or be living in a household with an income of less than £32,000 and be studying on a general further education course which is not available within 2 hours or 15 miles travel distance of their home address.
We have a team who can advise you on eligibility: please contact them on 01962 797267.
The balance of accommodation costs can be split over 10 monthly payments. Please note – residential bursaries are only available to students who are not on a travel route.
