Essential repairs and improvements maps 2019/20

Some of our blocks at Lafrowda are undergoing essential repairs and improvement works during the 2019/20 academic year. The blocks directly affected will receive a rent reduction to acknowledge the impact the works will have on the students living in these residences.

Use the map below to see whether you have been allocated an affected block or a block in close proximity to an affected block.

Please be advised that Chagford, Merrivale, Widecombe and Lydford are in close proximity to development works for a new student residence as outlined on the map below. More information about the Spreytonway development can be found on the Lafrowda, St.German’s and Residential Strategy webpages.

Please note blocks in close proximity will not be eligible for a rent reduction.

The information contained in this webpage may be subject to change.  We are seeking to provide you with as much detail as we are able to at this moment, however this could be changed by events outside the University’s control. For the avoidance of any doubt, the refund associated with the disruption will only be payable if the works proceed.
