Student Leaving HomeAt the last Ofsted inspection, Merrist Wood College’s residential provision was rated as “outstanding” in all five areas inspected: Overall Effectiveness of the Provision, Outcomes for Young People, Quality of Service, Leadership and Management and Safeguarding.

If you don't live in Guildford or the surrounding areas, but want to study at Merrist Wood College or Guildford College we can help you to arrange accommodation. Where you live is a really important part of your life as a student and a good home will help you settle into student life quickly and succeed on your course. Guildford is an excellent place to live and study.

You can choose between living on site in the Halls of Residence,
or locally with a family in Homestay Accommodation.

Woodlands and Cobbett are our halls of residence, on site at Merrist Wood College. There are 100 single study bedrooms with shared showers, toilets and sitting room facilities.

In Homestay accommodation you'll be treated as much as possible as one of the family. You will be invited to join the family in having breakfast and an evening meal (included in the cost) and will have a bedroom with a private study area, access to a bathroom and laundry facilities.
