Rootes is our largest hall with five blocks and accommodates 943 students in corridor style living. Students sharing the kitchen range from 12-19 which is ideal for forming strong long lasting friendships. It’s located very close to some of the University’s facilities including the Students’ Union and grocery store and is only a 10 minute walk to the Gibbet Hill campus.
