University of Nottingham
Competitors and Officials will be housed at the University of Nottingham in modern accommodation based on single-room (and exceptionally twin-room) accommodation units in University Halls of Residence.
The likely venue is Derby Hall. Each Hall of Residence has its own Dining Room, and all athletes will be fed at one sitting. The exact location will be decided in relation to the number of indicative participants attending. However as each Hall caters for over 200 resident students, and some for over 400, there is an ability to cater for all anticipated numbers. Openings and meal times will reflect the requirements of competitors, particularly Lightweights, in relation to race schedules.
In addition to the University outlets, food will also be available at the National Water Sports Centre in the form of packed lunches or teas as required by the visiting National Team Managers.
The University of Nottingham is a campus-based University of over 16,000 students set in parkland four kilometres east of Nottingham City Centre. It can offer over 3,000 residential beds on the main campus, with a further 1,000 within a kilometre in self-catering student hostels.
A major player in British University Sport, Nottingham annually hosts several BUSA Championships and European or International sports events. The University is the residence of choice for rowing crews training or competing at Holme Pierrepont, and annually caters for over three hundred athletes attending the British National Championships. The majority of GB National Team members are regularly based at the University during vacation national-squad trials or training camps, ensuring the on-site accommodation managers are aware and receptive of the requirements of elite athletes, particularly rowers.
