Two flats at Seething Wells are designated as "show flats" - we use these flats on up to six University Open Days per year to show our Halls to prospective students and visitors. Students in these flats receive credit against their Halls fees for the disruption and the student whose room is shown to visitors receives an additional credit. If you would like to apply for a room in a show flat please select the 'Show Flat' icon when you log on to OSIS and book your room.
