Accommodation

Single accommodation

The college offers accommodation for single/unaccompanied students in 68 individual rooms on the college's Banbury Road site, each room categorised based on size and facilities available in/near the room.  All accommodation is non-smoking.  A programme of upgrades is underway to add private bathrooms to some rooms, with the first house being completed in September 2017 and the second scheduled for the summer of 2018.

All rooms are fully furnished and contain at least:

  • Bookshelves

Some rooms also contain a chest of drawers, bedside cabinet and easy chair (varies by size of room).  About half the rooms with shared bathrooms have a washbasin in the room.  When a room does not have its own private bathroom, bathrooms are shared between up to 5 rooms.

Rent includes:

  • Utility bills (gas, electricity, water)
  • Cleaning – a cleaner will clean your room (and private bathroom where applicable) once per week and communal areas (shared bathrooms, kitchens) daily
  • Repairs and maintenance
  • Internet connection
  • Access to laundry facilities (coin-operated washing machines and tumble dryers)

Ordinands

Single ordinands of the Church of England and those who choose to commute weekly and return home at weekends are guaranteed accommodation in Wycliffe Hall for the duration of their course.  The Church of England maintenance grant covers rent and all meals in term time.  Vacation residence should be agreed with the diocese, although we expect all single ordinands will stay in their room through vacations, for which £120 per week is charged.  All ordinands who intend to be resident through vacations are housed in buildings with good self-catering facilities, as the Hall’s dining room is closed outside term.

Couples/Family Accommodation

Wycliffe Hall owns and manages several properties in Oxford (most within 2 miles of Wycliffe) that are available for couples and families to rent.  These properties range in size from 1 bedroom flats to 5 bedroom houses, and details of those available each year will be provided to eligible students.  Couples/family accommodation is primarily reserved for ordinands, but any properties not occupied by ordinands will be offered to independent students.
