Students attending York St. John University will live in the Lord Mayor's Walk residences. Each room is a single (no roommate!) with a twin bed, desk, closet, and sink. Students share bathroom and kitchen facilities with rest of the floor. Since this is a "catered" residence hall, students will also receive £50 (about $80) per week allowance via a catering card , called a "Quikpay" card, which they can then use in the various campus dining areas. A bedding pack (sheets, duvet, pillow) can be purchased for £30 ahead of time so that they are waiting for you when you arrive, but towels, cutlery, plates, pots, and pans are not included. These items can be purchase quite cheaply in town, though.
Lord Mayor's Walk is close to many campus facilities such as the Student Union, the gym, and dining facilities. It's also just a short walk into the city of York.
