Batavia Mews is made up of 12 self-contained flats. The flats vary in size and accommodate between 7-20 people. All the rooms in the hall are for single occupancy.
Most single rooms (ie not en-suite) are accommodated with a sink, and students will have access to shared kitchens and bathrooms that are cleaned daily (except for weekends and college closure days). You'll have access to the laundrette on the Loring Hall site
Nb: not all study bedrooms are equipped with an individual washbasin. The rooms are allocated randomly and rent is at a slightly lower rate if you don't have a washbasin.
There's no car parking at Batavia Mews. There is a bicycle rack at the rear of the building, and bikes are left there at the owner’s risk. You're encouraged to have insurance cover and an adequate lock. Bikes can't be kept in bedrooms or any other area inside Batavia Mews.
Rubbish is collected regularly throughout the week (except bank holidays and college closure days) from the kitchen areas. Recycling bags are provided in your kitchens too. Royal Mail deliver post to the hall.
Internet isn't provided by the Goldsmiths at this hall. Students are able to set up a contract with an internet service provider or company at an additional cost.
