Accommodation in University Colleges and Student Residences

If you enjoy weekend breaks in the UK but find chain hotels a rather impersonal experience, then why not try this unique opportunity to enjoy a stay within a historic college?

A large number of Oxbridge colleges rent out their rooms to visitors when students vacate them during the holidays. You could be overlooking the quads at Wadham College, Oxford, or follow in the footsteps of Darwin and stay at Christ’s College, Cambridge. Rooms start from just £50 a night and depending on the college you visit, you may also be able to enjoy breakfast in a gothic dining hall, stroll in beautifully landscaped gardens or enjoy a drink in the college bar.

Accommodation is generally situated close to the city centre allowing you easy access to the many attractions on offer. In many colleges breakfast is included in the price, and with many single rooms available, there are no hidden fees or single supplements. Revenue from renting out accommodation goes towards the upkeep of these historic buildings.

As well as rooms in Oxford and Cambridge, works with colleges throughout the UK and Europe. For those looking for a longer trip, they also have rooms available in college residences throughout Australia and Canada.
