Gilwell Hall

News update

We are pleased to announce that all Gilwell bathrooms have been renovated and are brand new for the 2015/16 academic year!

If you’re looking for value for money and a sociable atmosphere, then Gilwell Hall is ideal. It’s situated in the student quarter directly opposite the main University campus. It has a really strong community feel and it’s a great place to meet new people. With the city centre literally on your doorstep you’ll find everything you need within a few minutes’ walk.

The 200 standard rooms are a reasonable size and all have a sink and a desk. The rooms are divided into flats with six students sharing kitchen and bathroom facilities. There’s a small courtyard which is great for socialising in good weather. For those of you looking to make some lasting friendships, Gilwell is basic accommodation at its best.

  • Laundry facilities on site.
  • Broadband available in every room and a Wi-Fi service throughout the building.
  • Utility bills with water, gas and electric all included.
  • Bicycle and water sports storage facilities available to rent.
  • A range of rooms available from £97.30 per week.
"Being a part of the Residence Life Team at Gilwell has been thoroughly rewarding. It’s been great seeing the difference in people from when they arrived nervous and unsure, to them feeling relaxed and happy in their new surroundings, building friendships. Gilwell is a true community, and our regular hall activities have been great fun!"  Gilwell Residents’ Assistant.
