Accommodation Office

This section provides undergraduate and graduate students with information related to the student accommodation provided by the College, both on the Domus site and elsewhere in the city of Cambridge.

The JCR maintains a database of rooms which gives more detail in relation to the location, size, and facilities available in each room.  This can be found on the JCR Website.

The College publishes the Student Accommodation Handbook which gives comprehensive information with regard to the services provided by the College as well as more general information and the rules relating to occupancy of College accommodation.  It is recommended reading for all students at Christ's College.  More information relating to the Accommodation Office can also be found on the Intranet.


FRAUD ALERT

The College would like to post a general warning to our students about the fake/scam room rental websites which proliferate in Cambridge on a regular basis. We strongly advise anyone considering renting non-College/private accommodation to either use a local estate agent where you can visit an office in person or the University Accommodation Service who vet rooms and landlords. 

If you are unsure about anything please check again before parting with any money.  You should be especially vigilant if the room or flat looks good in photos online and the rent is low compared to similar accommodation: we've been told many students are caught out by urgently sending money via Western Union or similar so they don't lose out on what appears to be a great deal, only to find out later that the accommodation doesn't actually exist.

These specific websites have been identified as scams:
