Accommodation and Pastoral Information

Life as an Oxford Student

“Oxford is such a beautiful city and I felt so lucky to study there! You have to work hard but the subjects are so exciting and interesting. Your studies will be based around weekly tutorials, which are a great way to discuss a topic in-depth and hear lots of different points of view. You also have lectures and, if you’re a scientist, lab sessions. Your social life is based around your college - the college system creates a great community and provides loads of opportunities for hobbies and sports, as well as offering really good welfare and support.” - Louise, graduate of Brasenose College, 2016


Our courses take place in the Dorothy Wadham Building, part of Wadham College, a beautiful traditional college in central Oxford founded in 1610. Wadham is known for its diverse and welcoming community, as well as its many famous alumni including scientists, politicians and actors.

Residential staff will be on duty in the accommodation 24/7.
Accommodation benefits from safe enclosed grounds and full-time security guards.
All students will have single rooms with en-suite bathrooms in the brand-new Dorothy Wadham building.
