Accommodation

All of Wolfson's graduate accommodation is on-site or in a property immediately adjacent to the College grounds, which means all facilities are a step away from your door. Most of it is purpose-built with the exception of a number of converted Victorian houses.

This information applies to Long-Term Accommodation in College. Please see here for Short-Term Guest Room or B&B Accommodation

​The College aims to provide the majority of first-year students with accommodation and many students continue to live in College in subsequent years. It provides accommodation for single students as well as students with partners and students with families.

How much will I pay?

The current rents and Miscellaneous Charges can be found below. The rent includes all utility charges.The only extra charge for the accommodation will be for any telephone calls not within the University telephone system. 

Allocation of accommodation

It is hoped that we can accommodate most first year students who would like accommodation in college, which is offered on a first-come, first-served basis. Photos of various accommodation can be found on the accommodation types page

How long can I stay?

First year students can apply for accommodation from 1 August to 31 July depending on availability. 

Some accommodation is only available to 30 June each year. Every effort is made to to find alternative accommodation for those who need it.

If you are on a 2 or 3 year course, you can apply in the Accommodation Ballot which is held in February each year.

What do I need to bring with me/ what is included in the rent?

Can I bring a vehicle?

All residents who live on site are required to rent a garage space. Those who live in surrounding properties can park in the grounds, but must display the relevant permit.

Where and when can I collect my key?

All keys and Tenancies are available from the Lodge Porter from 12 noon on your arrival date.  Check individual email confirming the accommodation.  All rooms must be vacated by 12 noon on the date shown on the Tenancy.
