Here at Alcuin College we have a distinctive identity and a strong community spirit. Our focus is on supporting innovation and the personal and academic development of our members, as well as helping them to become active and engaged citizens in York.
We are one of the University’s first colleges, accepting our first students in 1967. Today, our accommodation is some of the best on campus. All of our spacious study-bedrooms equipped with en-suite showers as well as internet connections and wifi, and we offer modern leisure and laundry facilities.
Located on Campus West, we provide a home, social scene and support network for over 400 resident students and many hundreds of staff.
Our Civic Alcuin projects encourage our students to increase their employability as well as kick-start their own professional networking. Along with their academic studies, these opportunities are what make our students top of the game when applying for graduate jobs.
"Alcuin at first seems like just a room number and postal address, but you’ll soon come to see its so much more than that. It’s a family, a support network, and a great time.”
