Located on Campus West beside Central Hall, Vanbrugh accommodation ranges from large social blocks organised as open corridors to modern ensuite flats.
We're a lively college with a strong ethos of participation, whether in music, sport or creative activities. Our music facilities (open to all students regardless of college membership) support choirs, bands and music creators, with a fully equipped garage-band rehearsal space, recording studio and instrument lending library.
Our college house, ‘The Warren’, hosts regular activities from current affairs discussions to creative writing, baking and meditation.
One of our students shared their experiences with us. Read their blog here.

All of my best friends are also in Vanbrugh. It’s really easy to meet new people through the college musical events and sports teams as there are fewer people than there are in the university teams, so it’s not overwhelming at all.
