Living In the Manor
"We actually LIVE in this wonderful English manor house. It's our HOME!"
Students at Harlaxton have the unique opportunity to live where they study and learn while also living daily life. As most of the Faculty and Student Development staff join our students in living at the Manor and adjacent Carriage House, a holistic environment encompassing academic, social and personal learning is fostered both in and outside the classroom.
Not only is Harlaxton College staffed with a full-time Student Development team who support student groups, host activities and excursions, and are available to assist students in whatever capacity needed, student Resident Assistants are also recruited before each semester to assist their classmates throughout the term. Equipped to handle emergency situations, experts at program planning, and always ready with a listening ear, the Harlaxton RAs take pride in fostering healthy, community-oriented residential life here at the College.
Amenities in both the Manor and Carriage House include laundry facilities, vending, and TV/lounge spaces. The Refectory dining service, health clinic, Bistro pub, and Student Development Office are easily accessible to all residents, with a Sports Hall building on site, as well as walking trails within the 297 acres of surrounding gardens, parkland, woodland and farmland.
