Castle Irwell, John Lester, Eddie Colman, Bramall, Horlock and Constantine Courts' ‘Quieter Area’
If you are an individual that prefers a more peaceful atmosphere, or someone who is easily distracted by the noise of others, then you may wish to request to be allocated within one of the designated quieter accommodation areas at Castle Irwell, John Lester Court, Horlock Court and Constantine Court.
Students living in quieter accommodation are asked to adhere to certain conditions, which are slightly different from those operating at the rest of the accommodation areas, these include:
- Any noise from TVs/Computers, or music that is played in bedrooms should be kept to a low level at all times in the day and night (‘low level’ is categorised as being not significantly heard from outside of the bedroom)
- No music systems to be set up or played in the communal dining area.
- To refrain from inviting a large number of guests/visitors over at any one time.
Whilst we cannot guarantee noise will always be kept to a minimum, it is the intention that the ‘Quieter Area’ will be an opportunity for us to place like minded people together, and try to create a more harmonious living environment for our residents.
This option is dependent upon the consideration and co-operation of other residents.
Please note all applications to iQ Salford are processed directly and differ slightly to the other accommodation choices. iQ is also a non smoking accommodation location. Please visit the iQ Salford website or telephone +44 (0) 161 736 6501.
To secure your accommodation at iQ Salford you need to pay a £250 non-refundable booking fee with your application. This converts into a security / damage deposit at the start of your tenancy. Please note in the event you are unable to take up your allocated room because your chosen course is no longer available or you do not achieve the required grades to attend a course at Salford, your booking fee will be returned to you provided supporting evidence is supplied by the University of Salford.
