Undergraduate accommodation

At Churchill College you are guaranteed on-site accommodation for undergraduate courses.

As an undergraduate here, you live in a communal court within the College’s spacious gardens and sports grounds.

All Churchill College rooms are generously sized and modern. They all include a sink, and 40% have en suite bathrooms. All rooms are fully furnished, and most have double beds. All have free wi-fi, access to shared bathrooms, laundry facilities and snack kitchens. Snack kitchens contain fridges and combination microwaves (ideal for making snacks, but not intended for complex cooking).

You will be able to choose the type of room you would like in an annual room ballot, and while we can’t always guarantee you your first choice of room, you will be allocated a room which meets your needs and budget.

Other College charges are billed monthly and include food purchased in the Dining Hall and Buttery, electricity (not heating) used in your room, and printing.

Each room is banded and rents in the academic year 2023-24 range from £148.60 to £249.20 a week. Rents are determined annually, in agreement between College and student representatives.

Rent is normally payable for just 30 weeks, which covers the periods of residence dates set by the College. Termly rent is normally made for a minimum of 10 weeks. This does not include vacation periods, which are outside the 30-week periods of residence. During vacation periods and subject to availability, it may be possible for you to remain at Churchill College (though not necessarily in the same room you have during term-time).
