Because the size and shape of each room varies slightly due to the design of the buildings, the number of roommates may vary from one to four students per room. Responses from surveys completed during the application process are used to match roommates, and students find out their rooming assignments upon arrival at the manor.
Here at Harlaxton, the Student Experience Office provides support to the student community. You are encouraged to work with the staff to create a Harlaxton experience that meets your needs. Staff members are available during regular working hours and one member of staff is always on call. The team facilitates the travel program, house competitions, community engagement portfolio, residence life, student organizations, and most of the campus activities. Their mission is to ensure that students have access to the essential elements of a successful Harlaxton experience.
The college Library supports the educational and research needs of the college community and is accessible 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Our online Library system can be accessed at Harlaxton College (accessit.online).
The Library also hosts Student Success Labs which provide additional academic support. You are encouraged to use this service for extra help with research, writing, or revision.
Harlaxton has up-to-date facilities and networking which make it easy for you to connect while at the manor. Most students bring their own laptops and other devices (e.g. phones, tablets) and connect directly to our campus wide wireless network (802.11 a/b/g/n), which provides coverage in all classroom, office, social, and residential spaces. Our classrooms have been updated with easy Clickshare technology that allows students and faculty to make presentations and share screens easily.
You have three main options for using your cellphone abroad.
International Plan with US Carrier: Look at your current plan with your carrier and see if you have international inclusions. If not, look and see if your carrier has an add-on for international usage that works with your budget.
Add UK SIM card: You can purchase a UK SIM card upon arriving. With this option you get a UK phone number and use a pay as you go plan. For example, 15 GB for £10 a month. Most of our students choose this option.
Wi-Fi Only: You can turn off your data and only use Wi-Fi on your phone. You could also purchase a cheap British phone and have that on you for emergencies.
