Accommodation - About the Rooms

St Edmund's College has considerable history and character, and has undergone several phases of development. Consequently the rooms are distributed in buildings of differing ages, and they are of varying sizes and levels of facilities.

Single rooms in St Edmund's are categorised from 1 to 7. Category 1 has the lowest rent and categories 5 to 7 the highest. In general, category 1 rooms are smaller and situated in the older buildings whilst those in category 5 and 7 are generally larger, have en suite facilities and are situated in the newer buildings.

From the beginning of the Michaelmas term 2019, the College will have a brand new accommodation development, Mount Pleasant Halls, which is on the main campus.  This development will consist of brand new single ensuite bedrooms and studios.

We are unable to show any of our accommodation to prospective students before they come into residence.
