Alcuin Bistro and The Kitchen



Rather than a college bar, Alcuin College has two cafés - The Alcuin Bistro and The Kitchen.

Alcuin Bistro is open 9am-3pm Monday-Friday and serves a range of tasty hot main meals served to your table or for something lighter choose some cold snacks to enjoy in the café or take away. 

The Kitchen is open 8:30am-4:00pm Monday-Friday with a late night menu available 5:00pm to 11:00 pm. This shabby-chic delicatessen provides a range of fair-trade coffees, loose-leaf teas, and freshly baked baguettes and cakes in quirky, cosy surroundings.



To use the laundrette you can either purchase a Circuit Laundry top-up card at the machine in the laundrette or download the "Circuit" app.  The app allows you to pay for laundry and also monitor when machines are available. Access to this room is available 24 hours/7 days per week.

Junior and Senior Common Rooms

Alcuin Junior Common Room (the JCR)

Both the Junior and Senior Common Rooms are social spaces. The JCR is for undergraduates and the SCR is for postgraduates. They are for you to use as a study space during the day, for CSAC meetings and for many college events throughout the term. Both rooms are complete with a small kitchen, large-screen TV and surround sound audio. Access to these rooms is available 24 hours/7 days per week.



Alcuin Receptionists are open 24 hours/7 days per week. They manage keys, noise problems, and they are first aid trained.

Outdoor BBQs and Bike Sheds

Alcuin College has two double barbeques, one in each of the two accommodation quads, which accommodate disposable trays. These trays are to be disposed of safely after use. The barbeques are not bookable and you can use them at any time.

Each accommodation block has its own bike shed. These are lockable with your accommodation key card so only students in your block can have access.
