The UCPA ​centres ​have a fantastic set up for students. The bars and social areas are great for large groups to meet up together for some apres ski.  

The centres are all either ski in/ski out, a short walk from the pistes, or a really easy bus service to use and with everything provided on site, there is no need to use vehicles during the week. 


Groups will be accommodated together in dorm style rooms. The size of the rooms do vary but in the majority of resorts they are 4-bed with shared shower and WC facilities. There are lockable cupboards (padlock required) in each room for individual belongings.  

If you are booking a large group, you can decide on your own rooming arrangements (though if there are any spare beds in a room, then individuals may be accommodated with other UCPA customers of the same gender staying in the centre). 

Although there are some twin rooms in the centres, these are not normally available for student groups. 

Individuals are required to strip their beds and clean the rooms at the end of the stay.
