Accommodation for Graduates
Our graduate accommodation is mainly single-occupancy rooms with a limited number of two-bedroom flats available for students living with a partner or family. 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 aims to provide one year's accommodation for most first year graduate students, although this cannot be guaranteed. 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.
