Conveniently located near Gatwick Airport, just outside London, there are excellent transport links to London Victoria and London Bridge. For details on how to get to the college, please see Travel Directions.
The College stands in its own beautiful grounds, surrounded by mature trees, shrubs and lawns, both to the front and rear of the building. This setting provides a peaceful atmosphere conducive to the study and assimilation of the course material.
The college also provides FREE onsite parking within the grounds for those students travelling by car.
Reasonably priced bed and breakfast or hotel rooms are available in and around East Grinstead, and the College is always pleased to provide students with information concerning these matters. Some students find it more economical to get together and share a house, whereas other students base themselves in Brighton (or occasionally London).
The College is fortunate to have comprehensive facilities all under one roof.
The College has a number of rooms which are used by students, allowing for a maximum of 25 students per class. There are also rooms dedicated to practical use such as point location and practical clinic learning.
The Student Common Room
This is an annex to the main building and comprises a common room, a kitchen and cloakroom facilities. Students also have access to their own private lockers. This complex is for the exclusive use of students. In the summer students can enjoy and relax in the extensive grounds.
The main building also benefits from a newly decorated lounge exclusively for the use of students looking to relax on the comfortable sofas during their free periods and break times.
The College Library is situated on the top floor of the building in a newly refurbished room adjacent to the IT Room. A dedicated Librarian oversees the Library. The stock comprises books, journals, past dissertations theses, videos and audio-cassettes. Most items may be borrowed, although a few are limited to Library use only (reference texts).
Items not available in the Library may be requested from the British Library Document Supply Centre. Reading lists are issued at the beginning of each academic year and our Librarian is able to source new texts at a discount for students.
The IT Room, adjacent to the Library on the top floor, allows students to research, study and prepare projects and homework. We have installed new higher spec computers, with flat screens as well as new furniture. Consequently students are making great use of the room.
As a partner college of Greenwich University, students also benefit from the use of Greenwich University online facilities – access to electronic journals and periodicals.
The Student Office
Located at the back of the College, this room is a hive of activity dealing with all general external enquiries as well as acting as a focal point for students requiring assistance.
The Teaching Clinic
This is a very important benefit to students, enriching their clinical practice and experience right from the beginning of the course, and is highly valued. It is located on the ground floor giving easy access for disabled patients. It comprises a main reception and waiting room and five treatment rooms, one of which still retains the original oak beams and panelling. This very busy teaching clinic is visited by patients, not only from the local vicinity, but also from further afield as well as from abroad; the clinic being located near Gatwick Airport is a positive advantage.
