Located at one of the highest points on campus, near the library, Alcuin College is organised in blocks around grassy social squares. The accommodation is all ensuite and arranged in flats with shared kitchens.
We have an ethos of mutual support and civic and environmental engagement. We'll support your personal and academic development by working with neighbouring departments and student organisations, and you'll have the opportunity to work on projects with the local community and charities in the area through the Civic Alcuin Initiative.

Being part of Alcuin definitely helped to make the transition of moving from home to University a smoother process, and there was plenty of support for students of all backgrounds. I’m very happy that I am a part of Alcuin and couldn’t have had a better experience of my first year at University
