You may bring other personal possessions to the college, however the college will not be held responsible for any loss or damage. A lockable drawer has been provided for the safekeeping of money and personal possessions.
Posters are permitted using the drawing boards provided in all rooms. Attaching posters to walls is likely to cause damage to paintwork and if this occurs, you may be charged for redecoration.
Rooms will be inspected on a weekly basis. The purpose of these inspections is to ensure that the college and the residents are complying with health and safety requirements, such as fire regulations, and complying with the conditions of residence in regards to general housekeeping issues in both bedrooms and communal areas.
College caretaking and authorised contractors may require access to your room from time-to-time and you will be informed in advance if this is the case. Every room will be inspected regularly by hostel cleaning staff; however it is the student’s responsibility to make the bed and keep the room tidy.
You may wish to bring a television for your bedroom, however you need to ensure that you have a licence for it. You are also allowed to bring other electrical items as long as you ensure that electrical sockets are not overloaded (no electric fires or equipment that may set off a smoke/fire alarm are allowed, this includes kettles, fridges, extension leads, multi plugs, candles or tea lights within the bedrooms).
If you are unhappy with room sharing arrangements, then you should approach the hostel warden as a first point of contact and then the Head of Learner Services & Marketing in order to ensure the matter is resolved.
The wardens ensure that all under-18 year olds must be in their rooms no later than 11pm. Over 18 year olds may retire later but must use the communal area nearest to their own bedroom after 11pm. The wardens also keep an eye on the building in order to ensure that no unauthorised persons have access to the site. Excessive noise is not acceptable at any time but especially after 11pm when other residents are trying to sleep.
Grŵp Llandrillo Menai does not tolerate the possession or use of any substance including alcohol in the college in general and also prohibits the smoking/vaping of any substance within College buildings.
ANY STUDENTS FOUND WITH ALCOHOL OR ILLEGAL DRUGS IN THE HOSTEL WILL BE DISCIPLINED STRAIGHT AWAY. THEIR PARENTS WILL ALSO BE INFORMED.
