Applications for Michaelmas Term 2021
Due to demand far exceeding supply, applications for single accommodation starting in Michaelmas 2021 for the academic year 2021/22 are now closed. We apologise for any disappointment caused. If you are looking for accommodation starting in HT 2022, please contact the Graduate Accommodation Office via email in November, when we will be able to advise on availability due to cancellations.
Applications for Couples and Family accommodation starting in MT 2021 remain open, though there are also limited options remaining for this type of accommodation.
Due to the shortage of University and College-owned single accommodation in Oxford, demand currently exceeds supply. We are very aware that securing suitable accommodation is especially difficult for graduate freshers overseas, unfamiliar with Oxford, and unable to attend viewings. For this reason, the Graduate Accommodation Office operates a tiered waiting list system that prioritises graduate freshers.
The singles waiting list is therefore organised into three tiers:
- Tier 1 - first priority: An overseas graduate fresher
- Tier 2 - second priority: A UK graduate fresher
- Tier 3 - third priority: Returning graduate students and students who have previously undertaken a degree in Oxford.
Returning students will only be allocated single accommodation if all freshers have been housed. If you fall into this category, we would, therefore, advise you to look into alternative accommodation sources, as we may not be able to confirm whether you have been allocated accommodation until later in the year.
Couples and family accommodation
The couples and family accommodation waiting list is not subject to the same tiered system, and applications will be dealt with on a first-come, first-served basis in waiting list order. Priority for 2 bedrooms and 3 bedroom accommodation is given to couples with children. For more information, please see our occupancy policy.
Applicants with disabilities
The University has a range of rooms suitable for applicants with a disability, and we will also make other adaptations where we can. Please make us aware of any specific requirements you may have when you fill out your application form.
We would also recommend that students register with the Disability Advisory Service (DAS), as they will provide specialist advice and assistance regarding facilities across the University.
