Yes. The University provides secure bike storage on campus and at most of the halls. We require bikes to be properly secured outdoors, in the designated areas at halls, so that fire escape routes are not blocked.

The list of items not permitted includes candles, fridges, freezers, tumble dryers, microwaves, toasters, kettles and heaters. This is not the full list so if you aren't sure, please contact the residences office and we will help.
If you have a disability that requires additional equipment in your room (like a fridge for storing medication etc), please get in touch with us so we can discuss appropriate arrangements.
