St Anne’s has an excellent range of College accommodation and can offer on-site accommodation to undergraduate students for at least three years of their degrees.
All of our undergraduate study-bedrooms are single occupancy, and vary from characterful Victorian to bright and contemporary. Students live with others from their year group, with rooms allocated by a ballot each year. All accommodation includes kitchens, which are shared by approximately 9 students, and almost half of our rooms are en-suite. These rooms are usually allocated to our third-years. Students on four year courses (except for Linguists) usually live out for one year in College-rented houses or subsidised private rentals.
We also have rooms specially built for disabled access. If you are an offer-holder and have any accommodation requirements related to a disability, please contact our Disability Adviser.
Graduates at St Anne's benefit from the facilities offered by Robert Saunders House, an 80-room purpose built hall of residence located in Summertown, and Eleanor Plumer House, our dedicated Graduate Centre on the College campus.
Summertown is a short cycle ride north of the College and has a number of cafés, supermarkets and other amenities. Eleanor Plumer House contains 13 student rooms, a common room, kitchen and a computer room.
For those not living in St Anne's College accommodation, the University Graduate Accommodation Office also lets and manages rooms, flats and houses in and around Oxford city centre, on sites owned by the University, to full-time graduate students.
St Anne’s College has signed-up to the Student Accommodation Code because we are committed to raising the standards of our student accommodation. The code outlines everything that you can expect whilst living in College accommodation and also sets-out your responsibilities as a tenant. The Code can be viewed via the link in following logo:
At mealtimes most students choose to use the Dining Hall, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner on weekdays and brunch at weekends. There is always a vegetarian option and quite often a vegan option alongside provided at all meals and menus are available online for the week. The Chef and his team cater to all dietary needs. Just make yourself known to a member of the Dining Hall staff.
Eating together provides a great opportunity to meet students from different courses and year groups. Most meals are self-service and informal, costing approximately £3.50 for lunch or dinner. If you are an undergraduate living in College accommodation, at the start of each term your University card is topped up with £125, which can then be used to buy food in hall and at STACS (the St Anne's Coffee Shop).
We also hold around 5 optional formal dinners in Hall per term, which cost £14.50 for a three course meal with wine. At St Anne's we're proud of our chefs who have won awards in national competitions – not something most Colleges can claim!
Our kitchen has its own Instagram page where you will be able to find photos of dishes and events that the chef brigade have produced in the past. Follow them at @st_annes_kitchen
