Queen’s has dedicated accommodation for its graduate students. Although the College is unable to guarantee accommodation for all graduate students, for the academic year 2018 – 2019, Queen’s has committed to housing 70% of its single, commencing graduate students who apply for College accommodation no later than 1 June.
The College also aims to house 50% of graduate students overall (those requiring single occupancy accommodation). All graduate accommodation is off-site and the College has recently supplemented its housing provision for graduate students by renting a number of flats from the private sector and additionally supplied rooms through the University housing stock.
Commencing students who have requested accommodation and paid their deposit to the College by 1 June will receive an email in the following weeks from the Domestic Bursar’s Administrator who will assign accommodation. Once the deadline has passed, the offers of accommodation will continue throughout the summer to include continuing students, until the supply is exhausted.
Graduate accommodation is offered at three different locations in Oxford; contractual process and lengths for each of the properties varies and is described briefly alongside each of the properties below. All students who wish to occupy College accommodation will be required to sign a ‘Licence to Occupy’ before keys will be issued for the room or flat.
Smoking is not permitted inside any of the buildings, accommodation, cloisters or gardens except as designated. E-cigarettes and vaping may not be used in rooms. Car parking is not permitted for students at any of the College sites. College rules and further information can be found here.
The Universities UK approved code of practice for student accommodation sets out basic standards for student accommodation in Higher Educations Institutions, including the Oxford colleges. The code protects your rights to a safe, good quality place to live. You can find out more information in the Accommodation Code of Practice on the Universities UK website.
