Shared Room

As a first year, international, study abroad or exchange student, you may want to keep the costs down, so the Shared Rooms are for you. All our Share Rooms are fully furnished and professionally serviced weekly. Just bring your own linen and anything else you need to make your room home.

Room description

Our Shared Rooms are generous in size, with plenty of room for you to personalise and accessorise your space.

While sharing your room with a friend is great fun, you will quickly discover that your wing and communal facilities also play a big part in helping you meet other young people and develop new friendships.

About our original buildings

Built in 1960 with funds that were raised by the Women's College Fund Committee over 32 years, our original buildings are of particular significance to everyone in our College community.

It's been designed to support the greatest features of life at St Catherine's as a new resident, where socialising with friends and great corridor conversations are a regular occurrence.

How are rooms allocated?

Shared Rooms are subject to availability and are primarily for students who are in their first year at university as well as all international, study abroad and exchange students.

The senior staff are responsible for the allocation of rooms. A variety of factors will be taken into account when placing residents in accommodation areas. These include availability, seniority, academic needs and community considerations.
