Christopher Court

Christopher Court was built in Sidcup in 2015 for students of the Rose Bruford College of Theatre & Arts and is only 10 minutes’ walk from the College.

Situated just opposite Sidcup train station, you're just 30 minutes from London's glittering West End. There’s a Costa Coffee right next door and Station Road is full of cafes and take away places, most of which offer student discounts.  Sidcup has everything you need: shops, a leisure centre, cinema, pubs, restaurants and lovely parks and green spaces.

Christopher Court has 28 flats, made up of 6 en-suite study bedrooms with their own shared kitchen/dining spaces. There’s high speed Wifi, a 24hr reception desk where you can always find team members to help you with anything you need and there’s secure bike storage and a laundrette on site. 

There are different types of room available so have a look to see which suits you best.
