Henshaws College - Residential buildings

Living at college

Living on our Harrogate campus provides more opportunities to develop your independent living and social skills. You will build up confidence in doing things for yourself, like cooking meals, doing laundry, personal care and communicating with others.

Residential options

If you are applying for a residential place, you can choose either four night boarding (Monday to Thursday) or full seven night weekly boarding. We also offer residential respite for students.

Student houses

Our residential houses are small and friendly with their own dedicated staff teams available 24 hours a day. Up to 20 students live in each house with bedrooms and facilities spread over two floors.


Your room

Most rooms are en-suite with shower, hand basin and toilet. They have adaptations such as grab rails in place for students who need them. There are also rooms with hoist and tracking for essential wheelchair users.

Communal facilities

House kitchens are equipped to a high standard and reflect the independence kitchens on campus, enabling you to transfer skills learnt in college into your house. As well as preparing meals and snacks, you can socialise and build friendships with other students.
