Please submit an application and you will be added to one of our waiting lists.
Our waiting lists will operate on a first come, first serve basis; please note for the couples and family list the priority for 2 bedrooms and 3 bedroom accommodation is given to couples with children.
The singles list, which is usually priorities using a tiered system; we will not be using this system for this application period.
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 who may be overseas, unfamiliar with Oxford, and unable to attend viewings, and it is for this reason that 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 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 that 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 be able to provide specialist advice and assistance regarding facilities across the University.
