LKH wants to offer you the kind of facilities that will help support your learning and enable you to feel part of a community. So you will find a number of facilities available to you. These include:
LKH serves as an hotel and a conference centre, and those studying with us can book a room to stay in at preferential rates. Normally your teaching takes place over two days, so most who study with us stay only for short periods. Many are close enough to Manchester to be able to travel from home – but it is helpful to know that beds are available if you need them!
There are also a limited number of flats available on site. These are owned by a housing association, Riverside Housing, rather than by LKH, but we are able to pass on to them the names of any students who are looking for accommodation. You are welcome to ask Registry for further details.
There is a restaurant that serves breakfast, lunch and evening meals. Various options are usually available, including a salad bar and vegetarian dishes. You simply turn up and pay for what you eat! On teaching days, many of us choose to enjoy one another’s company over lunch together, and for those who prefer lighter options it is possible to order sandwiches.
We have five main teaching rooms. These are small in size, designed to enable shared discussion and engagement, in groups that are normally no more than 20. All are equipped with digital projectors and audio visual equipment. When we need a larger space, the chapel can also be used.
You will find that there are shared areas for your use. In particular, there is a large lounge that you can use whenever you want, and a smaller common room with kitchen and laundry facilities. At reception there is chocolate available and you can order drinks from the bar!
A well-equipped library is available for your use. Not only will you find the books you need to study here, but there is also desk space and computer terminals available. For more information go to the Learning Resources section of the website.
Each year the student body appoints officers to help ensure that the needs of all students are represented. With their help you will be able to apply for an NUS card that qualifies you for student discounts in a number of different places.
