  1. Hello!!

    My friends and I are looking for accommodation for the grad ball on Saturday 20th July for two double rooms. I thought i heard or read somewhere that there are uni halls open that evening but I cannot find where I read this. Are you able to help please?

  2. Hi Isobel,
    There are rooms available in Rees Halls throughout the summer. However there are only 25 single rooms left for Saturday 20 July. They are £44.00 per room per night and include breakfast.
    If you would like to book please call the office on 023 9284 4884. Payment over the phone by card will be required.
    Hope this helps.
