Varsity House

Under 18s Accommodation

Any student, under the age of 18 studying at CSVPA must live in our dedicated under 18 halls at Varsity House where we focus on maintaining a safe, secure and carefully monitored environment for our younger students.

We put a strong emphasis on pastoral care at CSVPA and all under 18 boarding is managed by our highly trained team of professional house parents. Students from CSVPA staying at Varsity House U18 will have the joint benefit of living with fellow creative arts students but also the opportunity to interact with students from our sister school at CATS Cambridge.


The welfare of our students is our number one priority and we want to make sure you have everything you need to make Cambridge your second home. At Varsity House we offer a fully supervised hall of residence that allows you to enjoy your student experience in a safe, relaxing and friendly environment.

Providing a comprehensive support network including a team of highly experienced live-in house parents, fully staffed reception, an onsite medical centre, with access to a UK registered Nurse, our students thrive living in this family-orientated residence that’s located within easy reach of CSVPA.

Each student room has a bed, wardrobe, desk and plenty of under-bed storage and draws. Our rooms are en-suite with private bathroom facilities. Wireless access is available from 6am to 2am. Each hall has its own communal kitchen and lounge/dining area where students can make snacks. The courtyard offers seating and an outdoor gym equipment.
