If you have just accepted your University of Huddersfield offer for September, congratulations, it is now time to choose your accommodation – you are in the right place!
With all the uncertainties that this year has thrown up, you are probably searching for reassurance, that wherever you choose is set up to give you the support you need. It looks likely that some courses will mix face-to-face tuition with remote learning in the 20/21 academic year. You will be keen to make sure that the student accommodation you choose will make this as easy as possible.
So, what to look for…
Does this accommodation have the right technology in place?
Is it in a location where I can focus on my studies, free from distractions?
Has the accommodation made changes for my safety and wellbeing?
Is the campus accessible when I need to go in?
These are all questions that DIGS Storthes Hall Park answers with a resounding ‘yes’.
Let’s start by looking at how our student accommodation can support your remote studying at the University of Huddersfield. We offer a great environment for blended learning.
Firstly, you can relax knowing that Storthes Hall Park offers great Internet throughout – with up to 100mb broadband and WiFi. You can easily log on to lectures and the MyHud intranet, whilst also enjoying video calls with the outside world. Our site is also covered by all major 4G mobile network providers.
If you want the option to work in your room, our larger-than-national-average room sizes offer a comfortable place to study. You also have a range of room styles to choose from, including singles or doubles. All our bedrooms have an en-suite bathroom and feature spacious kitchens so you can grab a snack or cook up a meal to enjoy with friends and housemates. There is a bar and restaurant on-site, too, for those lazy longer days.
You can also work away from your room in our designated study area – because let’s face it, it’s great to be able to have a change of scenery sometimes. So, whether you have online lectures or coursework to complete, there is always a quiet place for you to nest away.
The location of Storthes Hall Park makes it a great choice when your course requires an element of remote working. Nestled within beautiful Yorkshire woodland with acres of green space on your doorstep, this idyllic setting gives you all the peace and quiet you need to concentrate. It is a great location for promoting a positive mindset and perfect for your physical health, too, with plenty of walking and running routes for you to choose from.
Just 15 minutes from Huddersfield town centre, with a dedicated bus service running regularly to and from the town and campus, you can get to lectures or to the shops and back as you please.
THE DIGS EXPERIENCE
Away from studying, there is so much to do here. After a day of remote learning or lectures on campus, you can take your pick from a wide range of activities and events. Including an on-site cinema, bar, gaming room, gym, free fitness classes and a dedicated events team who organise activities and competitions to make sure there’s never a dull moment at Storthes Hall Park.
And one of the best parts of having a student community all in one place is the support network that you can enjoy while you’re immersing yourself in online learning. You won’t ever feel like you’re on your own and you’ll have access to wellbeing support and our DIGDEEP programme.
