The Sir Charles Groves Hall, owned and managed by Liberty Living, is purpose-built with all modern amenities and offers a truly cost effective place to live, as you will be able to walk to lectures or rehearsals in just a few minutes.

RNCM students occupy the majority of the 612 rooms in the Hall, giving an even greater opportunity to be part of a safe student community and make friends as soon as you arrive.

You will have your own en-suite room in a shared flat for four, sharing a fully-equipped lounge/kitchen. As a purpose-built residence, the rooms allocated to RNCM students allow you to practice in your room between the hours of 9am and 9pm. Pianists can even arrange to have a loan piano in their room.

There is always someone to turn to in the Hall, as welfare and support of RNCM student residents is overseen by two senior student residents and a member of staff.
