Life at Taurima

Taurima is a great place to live ... Here’s what to expect!

Full Board

We provide meals seven days a week. There is a choice of toast, fruit, yoghurt and cereal for breakfast, cooked or cut lunches and a cooked dinner at night with dessert.

It’s important that you don’t go hungry, so if you can't join us for lunch, there are cut lunch fillings available during breakfast so that you can prepare sandwiches to take with you. If you can’t join us for dinner, we will keep your dinner for you to heat up on your return.

Tea, coffee, hot chocolate and snacks are available anytime between breakfast and lock-up at night.


As you'd expect, there are a range of facilities for residents to use. There is a lounge in the main building and a recreation building which contains a pool table, gym, piano, a second lounge and a study area. The 'token operated' laundry is equipped with two washing machines and a commercial clothes dryer.

Internet access is included as part of your fees.


We only have single rooms at Taurima – so you will have your own room and you won’t have to share your space with someone else!

The bedrooms are centrally heated in the winter.

All our beds are divans (with drawers underneath) and there are built in desks and wardrobes with shelves.

Fresh linen is provided each week - sheets, towels and pillowslips.


Staff are on duty 24 hours/day, with at least two staff members on site during the night. There is  limited off-street parking for residents' cars only  and a lock up bike shed.
