For residential learners, living at the College is an important part of the learning experience and the full-time residential students create a special atmosphere from which everyone benefits. Living where you study without the usual domestic pressures, for example: shopping, cooking, housework, childcare expenses etc. can be of great value to the learning experience and the continued success of Northern College students is testament to this way of learning.
The College has a variety of single and shared study bedrooms on the Wentworth Castle site which are located in the Stable Block, the first floor of the Old Coach House, Dairy Cottage, Home Farm and Wentworth Court. Wentworth Court has some specially designed self-contained accommodation units with bathrooms and kitchenettes for students with children. Student accommodation areas have common rooms with a television and small kitchen. Groups of rooms are served by a shared toilet, bathroom and shower facilities. Bed linen and cleaning services are provided and there is a launderette facility for student use. A number of study bedrooms are wheelchair accessible and two rooms in the Stable Block have been adapted for students with impaired mobility. More specially designed facilities for mobility impaired students have been built in Wentworth Court.
