About Our Accommodation

Our premium accommodation offers a modern feel and is perfect for both Undergraduate and Postgraduate students.

South College has 496 bedrooms in total. All of our accommodation is located on the Mount Oswald site which means that it is a few minutes walk from the College buildings such as College Office, the College Café-Bar, the Junior Common Room (JCR), the College Study Space, the MUGA (Multi Use Games Area), and the Hub.

Our Town Houses each hold twelve students across three floors with a bathroom between every two rooms. On the ground floor of each Town House is a large kitchen and dining area with lockable cupboards, ovens, hob, and fridge/freezers.

Our En-suite rooms are in cluster flats of five to eight rooms, each cluster has its own fully equipped kitchen and dining area. We also have five accessible rooms that have access to kitchens with bespoke adjustable countertops and accessible appliances.

We have five wheelchair accessible bedrooms for those students who require this type of accommodation.

Residence charges are inclusive of heating, electricity, water and WIFI. The laundry facilities are located in the Hub with washing machines and dryers that are operated on a pay as you go basis.

The allocation of bedrooms takes place in the summer. Bedrooms are allocated based on the information provided by new students on their accommodation application. For first-year undergraduates this will be sent to applicants shortly following A level results.
