Students live in flats on the Bible College campus and have access to shared common areas during the day, including a lovely courtyard, which can be a fantastic sun trap when the sun shines on our part of the world; the main church sanctuary, which is fitted with a ping pong table at some times and clears for workout equipment or an occasional céilidh (a Scottish dance); a library and classroom for quiet study; and a fellowship hall for, well, fellowship! Students also enjoy studying and relaxing in Gatehouse Coffee Shop, a ministry of Calvary Chapel York, located in the historic Walmgate Bar directly across the street from the Bible College campus and adjoining the only surviving barbican in England.
Each student shares a bedroom with up to six other individuals, one of whom serves as Dorm Steward, who is available to help room mates with any questions. Storage space in the flats is limited. You will have a shared wardrobe, one drawer, and space under your bed, but that will be shared with your bunk mate. Please do not bring more than one suitcase. Your suitcase will be stored for you elsewhere on campus.
Students buy and prepare their own food with a food allowance of £40, which is distributed weekly and, if budgeted carefully, can stretch to cover the cost of eating some meals out. Every flat has a shared kitchen with all kitchen equipment provided, including microwave, toaster, kettle, pots, pans, plates, glasses, and cutlery.
Wi-Fi is provided in the flats and throughout the campus, and each flat has a phone.
We have washing machines and dryers on campus available to use for no charge. Each student will be allocated a weekly laundry time.
CITY OF YORK
With historic buildings, cozy coffee shops, beautiful parks, buzzing markets, quaint river walks, and narrow snickelways, the City of York offers a fantastic diversion to those who want to take a few minutes off campus to explore or discover hidden treasures.
