General points on Accommodation and Vacation fees

The accommodation period runs for 41 weeks from the start of the winter term and finishes at the end of the summer term. Residents who wish to remain at Greygarth during the summer vacation must apply in writing in March. We cannot guarantee the availability of rooms during the summer vacation period.


Vacation fees are charged in advance on a pro-rata basis. A place is reserved after the payment of a £400 prepayment fee, returnable less any outstanding debt at the end of the academic year. Any resident who wishes to leave before the end of the academic year must hand in four weeks’ notice in writing. Cancellation can be made at any time prior to taking possession of a room upon first arrival.
