Facilities

St Aidan’s was designed by Sir Basil Spence, the renowned architect who was responsible for Coventry Cathedral, making us one of the most architecturally interesting Colleges.

The estate was designed around a theme of curves and straights, broadly in the form of a hand, with parallel accommodation corridors that enclose a spacious garden and beautiful landscaped grounds, which are used for relaxation and sport throughout the year. The main body of the building, the "palm", houses a library Music Room, Shop, Gym, Bar, Offices and a generous lively Junior Common Room. The MUGA is situated in our lovely gardens.  

  • Sporting facilities

    We have a college gym that is available for all Aidan’s students to use. We also have our own outdoor sports court, and during the summer months, the gardens are a hive of activity.
