St Edmund's 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 - 5. Category 1 has the lowest rent and category 5 the highest. In general, category 1 rooms are smaller and situated in the older buildings whilst those in category 5 are generally larger, have en suite facilities and are situated in the newer buildings.
From the beginning of the Michaelmas term 2017, the College will also be housing students at the new development at Swirles Court on the Northwest Cambridge site. All rooms here are category 5.
