The private development, St Peter's Hall, is situated in Hinton Road, between the town centre and the beach.

All accommodation is en-suite with high-speed broadband and wifi as well as all inclusive rent.

The accommodation is offered by Collegiate, one of Europe's leading providers of purpose built student accommodation.

The development has been designed specifically with the physical and mental welfare of students in mind in an effort to provide residents with a positive and rewarding student experience.

In 2016 more than 15,000 first-year students in UK universities reported that they suffered due to mental health issues, compared to approximately just 3,000 reporting the issue in 2006.

Further to this, 94 per cent of higher education institutions have reported an increase in demand for their counselling services over recent years and a report from Shelter, the housing charity, also highlights how a positive and carefully designed living space can benefit mental and physical health.

Each of the rooms in St Peter’s Hall has been specially designed to offer space, light, security and comfort. The communal spaces have been designed with a similar mentality in mind, offering students safe and comfortable spaces to study, play, relax and spend time with friends. On top of this, Collegiate also offer round-the-clock support through the site team who are always available to respond to enquiries or offer specialist support to students.
