Our central location means that we are nestled amongst libraries, shops, museums, theatres and restaurants. The beautiful old buildings that make up Univ have been fully modernised for 21st century needs, and despite our city centre surroundings we have several peaceful courtyards and gardens with grass and trees.
The College aims to accommodate Undergraduate students for all three or four years of their course in College-owned or College-managed accommodation. In their first-year students are housed on the main College site. For second-year, most students move up to the College’s North Oxford annexe on Staverton Road, a short cycle ride or 30-minute walk from the main site.
Because Univ is an old college, the rooms vary in size and style, from unique older rooms with lots of character, to the highly modern rooms in our Goodhart building. Most rooms have shared showers and bathrooms but some have en suite bathrooms, and each room is fully networked for computer use. There are three fully accessible rooms and several others with small adaptations for students with disabilities. All rooms are good quality and affordable. See below for more indicative costs and information about the different length contracts available to undergraduates.
We try to accommodate all first year Graduates on the main site, this means in a shared house in Merton Street or Magpie Lane, right in the heart of the City. The houses surround our main site, so are close and convenient to all Univ facilities. Please note, however, that if oversubscribed it may be necessary to accommodate some first year graduates at other sites.
