Colleges

You will be a member of one of our nine colleges throughout your time here. Nearly half of our postgraduate accommodation is in Wentworth, which is our dedicated graduate college.

Our colleges are much more than just halls of residence. As well as social, study and catering facilities, they also offer:

  • Support and guidance through a dedicated team of tutors and staff
  • Activities and events that bring together students, staff and alumni
  • Opportunities to meet new people and try new experiences

Although some departments are located within college buildings, you don’t need to apply for a particular college based on your course. Our campus location means that all our colleges are a short walk to our departments and teaching buildings.

Couples and family accommodation

Most of our rooms are for individual applicants, but we have some studio flats and houses available for students wishing to live with their partner and/or children. These aren't guaranteed, but we will try our best to help you.
