Where will my accommodation be?
We have three complexes of graduate accommodation in the city centre: Bear Lane (three minutes’ walk from main College), the EPA Centre on Museum Road (10 minutes’ walk), or Little Clarendon Street (13 minutes’ walk). All rooms have access to kitchens, and all 48 rooms at the EPA and 36 rooms at Little Clarendon Street have en-suite bathrooms. There are generally around 130 rooms available to graduates and fourth year students.
How much will it cost?
There is a wide variety of accommodation available across the three sites, and rooms are available at varying price points (bands A to D). Rooms have been designated their band based on a number of factors including, but not limited to, noise, natural light, amenities, room size, whether it has an en suite, the number of people sharing a kitchen etc.
For 2023-24, the prices according to band are as follows:
Band A = £30.70 per night / £7951.30 per year (based on a 37 week contract)
Band B = £29.51 per night / £7643.09 per year (based on a 37 week contract)
Band C = £27.56 per night / £7138.04 per year (based on a 37 week contract)
Band D = £24.57 per night / £6363.63 per year (based on a 37 week contract)
Graduate freshers are invited to apply for accommodation via our Accommodation Portal, in accordance with our prioritisation policy (please contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further information). The allocation of rooms from second year onwards is decided by a ballot, run by current graduate students.
You will be able to indicate your band preference in advance, and the allocation of rooms from second year onwards is decided by a ballot, run by current graduate students.
Most rooms are let for the academic year (37 weeks) with the option to extend into the Summer Vacation.
Current students can find more information here.
If you have specific accommodation requirements (due to accessibility or medical reasons, for example) you will be exempt from the housing ballot and will be allocated an appropriate bedroom.
We have accessible rooms in both the EPA Centre and Little Clarendon Street. Most of the main College site, including the MCR, is accessible by wheelchair. More detailed information can be found in the College Access Guide.
