Things to consider before you book 

***Breakfast in Grosvenor House, Northumberland House and urbanest halls

If you're planning to attend Summer School with a friend, and you would like to share a room, please have their details ready when you book. You will need to enter your sharers' names when you make the booking, and the payment needs to come from one of you. We don't allocate sharers on a random basis.
