Accommodation

How to go about finding accommodation?

Your college should be your first point of contact when looking for accommodation so please contact your college specific accommodation manager.

Undergraduate:

Colleges provide accommodation for all undergraduate students during their first year of study and for at least one other year of their course. The university also has an official website you can follow to find out more details about undergrad accommodation: https://www.ox.ac.uk/students/life/accommodation

Graduate:                                                                                                                                                                                           

Whilst some colleges do provide housing for grad students this is not always guaranteed and a wide range of accommodation can also be found in the private sector. The university has also provided a specific website to provide more information about graduate accommodation: http://www.ox.ac.uk/admissions/graduate/living-in-oxford/accommodation

Graduate Accommodation Office

The university owns and manages some buildings and houses accommodating graduate students. Largest sites such as Castle Mill and Summertown House accommodate hundreds of grad students including those with spouses and children in 1 or 2 bedroom flats. Often priorities are given to students with children, however the application process is quite competitive.
