Accommodation for Graduates
The College aims to provide one year's accommodation for most first year graduate students, with the possibility of accommodation for a further year, subject to availability. We have about 65 single rooms for graduates, some in College buildings and some in houses adjacent to the College. All of the single graduate accommodation has shared kitchens. There are a small number of two-bedroom flats overlooking the sports field, for graduates with partners (with or without children). Most of our graduate accommodation is on residential streets surrounding the College, in houses converted for student use or purpose-built graduate Halls. All College accommodation is non-smoking. The College is located on a multi-level site. We are committed to making arrangements to enable students with disabilities to participate as fully as possible in student life, and applicants are advised to contact the Graduate Officer with details of any specific needs. The College is signed up to the Student Accommodation Code and all accommodation is run in accordance with the Universities UK Code of Practice.
