St Anne’s is situated slightly north of the city centre – perhaps five minutes by bicycle – and just by the University Parks. Our main quadrangle is large and open, and the perimeter of College is made up of smaller-scale gardens.
We can offer accommodation to almost all those who wish to live in College property, and provide some financial assistance to the handful of second-year undergraduate students who rent outside.
In the last decade we have built three new buildings, the last and largest of which – the Ruth Deech Building – was completed in 2005, and have renovated many of our older ones.
As a result, St Anne’s can accommodate almost all of its undergraduates in on-site rooms. Experience reveals that there are always about 10 undergraduates who wish to live out in private accommodation in their second year. Thus, our aim is to accommodate all undergraduates who wish to live on-site for the duration of their time at St Anne’s.
The study bedrooms are single occupancy, and vary from characterful Victorian to bright contemporary. Almost half our rooms (44%) have en-suite bathrooms, and several were specially constructed for disabled access.
Graduates at St Anne's benefit from the facilities offered by Robert Saunders House. This is an 82-room hall of residence built in 1996 specifically for our postgraduate students. It is located in the heart of Summertown (a 5-minute cycle ride north of the College), with cafés, supermarkets, chemists and other amenities all extremely close by. Some graduate students are also housed in our new dedicated Graduate Centre – Eleanor Plumer House – which has 13 student rooms, a common room and graduate IT room.
Daily bedroom rate: £19.90 (including utilities)
Length of undergraduate contract in days: 174 days per annum
Students have the use of small kitchens on their staircases, but for serious meals most use the main dining hall, which serves breakfast, lunch and dinner.
We encourage communal dining, as it plays an important part in collegiate life. Most meals are self-service and informal, but several times during term there is a formal dinner in hall when our undergraduates and guests can dress to impress.
You can expect meal costs to be of the following order:
Lunch and Dinner £3.00 each
