We understand that it's important for students to unwind and enjoy their time at university and encourage our residents to do so. However, we also recognise that the close proximity of our rooms can lead to noise negatively affecting other residents. We ask that residents are considerate of their neighbours, especially between 10pm and 7am from Sunday night to Friday morning. On Friday and Saturday night, these rules are relaxed but we still ask that noise is not unnecessarily excessive. During examination periods, it's especially important to be respectful of the needs of fellow residents. If you feel the noise of other residents is disrupting your ability to work or sleep, please contact your warden.
If your fire alarm sounds, please leave your room promptly and move to your designated fire assembly point. You will be notified of your fire assembly point, as well as fire protocol, when you move in. We may conduct scheduled alarm tests and will inform you ahead of time if these are to take place. The fire protocol is placed on the back of all room and flat doors which you need to make yourself aware of this.

Hull enjoys excellent public transport with frequent buses passing through a nearby stop and we encourage residents to make use of this. If you do require the use of a car during your stay, you can get a parking permit through the council using your accommodation contract, we recommend speaking to the office about this before bringing a vehicle with you. For visitors, the King William House car park is just a few minutes' walk away and provides secure parking at a small cost.
Cleaning staff work across all our accommodation sites to keep kitchens and other communal areas clean, however we do ask that you treat this service with respect and keep these areas tidy. (Cleaning staff are not tasked with doing your washing up.) Bedrooms are the responsibility of residents, although we do also offer a room cleaning service for a small fee, which can be organised by contacting the office. We also ask that residents take responsibility for rubbish in both bedrooms and communal areas and do not leave bins to pile up for the cleaning staff.
We are very pleased to offer the use of the gym, cinema, games room and meeting room at no extra cost. We do, however, ask that these facilities are treated with respect; improper use will be taken seriously and could result in you losing access.
