Hodgkin House is only able to provide accommodation to Post Graduate students.
Under the terms of its constitution it cannot provide accommodation to anyone who is not studying at University.
Once your studies have been completed, you will need to leave Hodgkin House. We appreciate how difficult it can be to find suitable accommodation, so we are happy to help signpost and support any student who has completed their education to find alternative accommodation. Please note that we cannot accept Post Doctorates.
An application form is completed at the point of requesting accommodation. An offer is then made to you by Hodgkin House. Once this offer is accepted, there is a booking fee of £110 which is deductible from the first month’s fee. The booking fee is lost if the booking is cancelled or postponed. On arrival, a registration card is completed and other paperwork such a copy of your visa, passport, and offer letter is required and held in your file.
