Room ballot

Accommodation for continuing students

Continuing students who are not yet enjoying their second year of College accommodation are asked in Hilary Term if they would like College accommodation in the forthcoming academic year. Those students who require accommodation are asked to submit a request form. The room ballot takes place at the beginning of Trinity Term by drawing the request forms within the categories specified below:

(1) Second or third year students who have never been resident in College
(2) Final year students who have been resident in College for one year
(3) Second year students who have been resident in College for one year
(4) Others

Note: In paragraph (6) above, 'final' means 'third year' for clinical and DPhil students and 'second year' for MPhil students. The year of study refers to the year for which accommodation is sought, not the current year.

Students with partners and families

In conjunction with the above order of priority, the following will also be taken into consideration in the allocation of flats:

(1) Couples where both partners are students of the College
(2) Couples where one partner is a student of the College, the other partner being either a student or unemployed
(3) Others

Houses are normally reserved for students with families.

The College is usually able to provide two years' accommodation to all students. However, demand for some units (in practice, normally the houses) is variable. This means we are sometimes able to offer an extra year’s accommodation to qualifying students, normally those with families. Students with families who would ordinarily be expected to vacate at the end of the academic year may request a further year’s stay at the time of the room ballot, but should be aware that availability will not usually be known before July.
