Bruce Hall offers:

Great Hall (pictured above)

– basic dormitory style accommodation with single rooms and shared bathrooms
– can offer rooms for the day before and day after school ends for those who wish to stay longer
– a very limited number of ensuite rooms, double rooms or double rooms with ensuites will become available, which will be allocated on a first-come, first-served basis. We will not know exactly how many rooms for several weeks yet. A form is available here for anyone who wants to add their name to a waiting list for ensuite/double rooms. Those who do get a room will be invoiced separately from their registrations at a later date for the additional cost, so do not wait to register!

  • A double room, to accommodate a spouse or travelling companion not attending the summer school, will cost an additional $675 for the 6 nights (meals for the second person included).
  • Ensuite rooms (single or double) will cost an additional $120 for the 6 nights.
  • The cost for an additional night at the start or end of the school would be :
    • $65 for a single room (room only),
    • $95 for a single room (including dinner and breakfast),
    • $130 for a double room (room only),
    • $190 for a double room (including dinner and breakfast),

    plus a $20 surcharge for rooms with ensuites.
