It is our aim to nurture a sense of well-being and security by providing accommodation which gives students the space to be themselves and to grow in maturity and confidence.
The identification of the most appropriate accommodation for a student begins at the admissions interview. In addition, all students are offered on-going help with any problem relating to their accommodation: College staff will work together to make sure any issues are dealt with quickly and effectively.
If you would like to know more about our support services, weare happy to answer any questions you may have. Call us today on 01865 793333 or email us at email@example.com.
Pensons Gardens is made up of 30 en-suite bedrooms and is a ten-minute walk from the College. Each bedroom is fully furnished with a single bed, desk and chair, wardrobe and bedside table.
The College’s boarding facility within Between Towns Court is made up of 10 en-suite bedrooms and is a ten-minute bus journey from the College.
For further details please visit the Between Towns Court website.
Important note: to live in the College’s boarding facility within Between towns Court you must enrol as a boarder with the College and not book accommodation directly with Between Towns Court.
The boarding houses are cleaned daily in the common areas and the students’ bedrooms are cleaned fortnightly. Clean bed sheets are provided weekly. There are also laundry facilities for the students to use: house parents will help the students with this until they feel confident in doing it themselves.
Security is a priority for us, and the boarding houses have CCTV cameras outside the front door and are staffed 24/7 by house parents. The house parents are highly trained in pastoral care and get to know the students very quickly, which aids the support and care they provide.
The regular and frequent communication between the College’s Senior Tutors and the house parents is excellent and provides everyone with an holistic picture of each student in our care. Each morning the boarding staff email the College with the student checks, which tell us which students have had breakfast or have left for College. Students that are unwell are identified and follow-up correspondence takes place throughout the day. At night, curfew checks also take place, and any students who are late are contacted immediately by the house parents to ensure their safe return.
A further option is for students to stay with one of our approved host families. Students have a single study bedroom, with their breakfast and evening meal provided. Some homes also offer kitchen access for students who wish to make their own snacks. Host family accommodation in Oxford is limited, so you will need to discuss your requirements as soon as possible with the Accommodation and Welfare Officer.
Close contact is maintained with host families, most of whom have been housing our students for a number of years. All accommodation new to the College is carefully inspected and checked with the police before being recommended. Home-stays are usually a single bus journey away on a direct route that should take no more than 20 minutes – occasionally a little longer at peak times. Oxford has a regular and safe bus service that runs late into the evening.
