Prospective Students


The College’s houses, whether at Wychfield or elsewhere in the city, also form their own social foci. New graduates are guaranteed accommodation, provided that all the admission conditions set by the University are met by a College deadline. College housing is also available to most graduates who want it in the second and third year.  Our accommodation houses both female and male students. Accommodation is allocated for one year at a time. Accommodation is let on the basis of a year’s tenancy until 30 June in the first instance, with the option of extending to 31 August. You are obliged to occupy and pay for your accommodation for a minimum of 39 weeks (1 October – 30 June).

Please note that the College does not have any suitable accommodation for families with children.
