Applications for Michaelmas Term 2023
The 2023-24 accommodation application process is closed.
At this stage, we have allocated nearly all of our accommodation and the remaining options are very limited – we will continue to work through the current waiting list offering out any remaining accommodation in waiting list order.
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 small number of accessible rooms and flats that have been specially adapted for students with a physical 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. With supporting medical evidence, we may also be able to prioritise accommodation applications from students on the grounds of disability (physical or otherwise).
