Our Accommodation Buildings
St Anne’s College, University of Oxford, sits opposite the Radcliffe Observatory, the university’s iconic observatory from the 18th century.
St Anne’s is one of the largest University of Oxford colleges and has a fascinating history. Founded in 1879 as an affordable way for women to obtain a degree during the Victorian era, it has always been a home for innovation.
The college blends historic charm with modern amenities, offering comfortable rooms and common room space for you to socialise with fellow students.
Please note that Oxford Scholastica is separate from Oxford University, and it is important to understand that we have no formal connection with the university or St Anne’s College. You can read more about our relationship with Oxford here.
St George’s Gate
St George’s Gate is owned by Oxford University’s St Peter’s College, and is perched beside the Quaking Bridge, above the remains of Oxford’s original medieval wall.
St George’s is adjacent to the historic Oxford Castle, with an entrance courtyard and a lovely view of the Castle Mill Stream, part of the River Thames.
Along with our accommodation at St Thomas’ and Paradise Street, St George’s Gate is one of St Peter’s college’s annexe accommodations, where second and third year undergraduate students stay during term time.
Our Paradise Street building is also owned by Oxford University’s St Peter’s College, and is situated on a historic street in central Oxford, next to the listed Swan Bridge over the Castle Mill Stream.
Positioned right next door to the famous Oxford Castle, and within a few minutes’ walk of the city centre, the building offers single bedrooms with en-suite bathrooms and a study area for students to complete work set by their tutors.
St Thomas’ is also owned by Oxford University’s St Peter’s College. St Peter’s is the youngest Oxford college within the old city boundaries.
Students at St Peter’s are known as “Peterites”, and their famous alumni include Mark Carney, former Governor of the Bank of England; Edward Akufo-Addo, former President of Ghana; and Reverend Wilbert Vere Awdry, creator of Thomas the Tank Engine!

The Lampl Building is an annexe of Corpus Christi College, one of the oldest Oxford University colleges, founded in 1517. One of their earliest members helped translate the King James Bible in 1611.
Lampl is home to second and third year Oxford University undergraduates during term time, and is close to the famous Oxford Castle. Used in the English Civil War of the 17th century, the castle’s main function afterwards was as Oxford’s local prison. The prison was closed in 1996, and the castle buildings are now used as a trendy hotel!

What are the Different Types of Room?
When you register for your place with us, you’ll be asked to select either a standard room or an en-suite room. We’ll assign your room based on this preference. If you’re coming with a friend or family member and would like to be in the same building we can happily help.
Our en-suite rooms contain a standard single bed, a desk, a wardrobe and an en-suite bathroom with shower, basin and toilet.
By default, our en-suite rooms are single occupancy, however, many students prefer to share with another student, and we do have a limited number of twin en-suite rooms available.
You can register your interest for these twin rooms when you submit your Student Information Form after booking.
Our standard rooms are furnished with a washbasin, wardrobe and desk. There is a shared bathroom (usually shared between two to three students) on the corridor.
If you’ve booked a standard room, you might be allocated either a standard single or a standard twin room. A standard single is a room for one student, with a shared bathroom. Standard twin rooms house two students, with a shared bathroom.
Questions about our accommodation?
Boost your confidence and expand your comfort zone with a taste of independence. Supported by our friendly team of staff and tutors, and surrounded by your friends, you’ll be given responsibility for learning and living in Oxford.
Experience International Friendships
Our buildings have common room spaces where you can socialise or watch TV (like the World Cup!). These are great places to relax or catch up with friends on other courses, ensuring you always know where to go to find someone to chat to.
Our accommodation is near the Castle Quarter, a lively part of central Oxford. Built in the 1070s by a Norman baron, the original wooden motte and bailey castle was replaced with stone shortly afterwards, which is what you see today.
