Accommodation information for offer holders

This page is part of the offer-holders section for students who have been offered an undergraduate place at Christ's College. 

Room in New Court, Christ's College, Cambridge
Accommodation update
The Tutorial Office has decided to change the timing of collecting acommodation preferences for 2020 entry students. The accommodation information and questions will now be sent as part of a College Living Arrangements Form after all places are confirmed, in the week beginning 17 August. The deadline for this form will be 30 August.

The College provides accommodation for all of its students for the full duration of the undergraduate course for which they have been admitted.

You do not need to apply for accommodation: it will be allocated to you automatically for your first year. In later years you can choose it yourself, because there is a ballot.

We will give you the chance to tell us your preferred room rent and a few other details for your first-year accommodation by completing the accommodation section in the College Living Arrangements Form. This is an online form which the Tutorial Office sends to all offer-holders by email in the week after A level and other results are published, in August of the year they are due to start their course. The deadline for the form will be 30 August and we will not process forms on a first-come, first served basis so please don't worry if you will be away etc. as you will be able to complete the form when you return. 

Room in Christ's College, Cambridge

First year students are allocated rooms on the main College site. Rooms offer a range of facilities and are of different sizes, so the rent charged varies to reflect this. Heating, electricity and cleaning are included, and ALL rooms in College are non-smoking.

If you have any specific accommodation needs (e.g. due to a disability, Specific Learning Difficulty or long-term illness), you will be able to give us this information in the box on the First Year Students' Accommodation Preferences Form. The relevant question asks if there is anything else that you would like us to consider when allocating your accommodation, so you will have the opportunity to explain your needs.

Facilities for self-catering are extremely limited, so students are encouraged to take advantage of the meals offered in the canteen instead. Given notice, the Catering Manager can provide for those with particular dietary requirements for medical or religious reasons.
