On arrival at the College students will receive a statement of the charge for their particular room, and other charges in detail. The College allocates accommodation to 1st years, but before the end of the first year, students are given the chance to bid for a preferred room for the second year of residence. Those with the lowest grade rooms in the first year have an increased chance of a higher grade room in the second year. Final room allocation is decided by the College.  The College reserves the right to move students from one room to another on site during the year, if necessary. Such occasions are likely to be very rare but might, for example, be in order to undertake urgent maintenance or to release a particular room in order to meet a student’s special accommodation requirements.
