A generous donation from Canning and Eliza Fok allowed the College to build a new graduate accommodation block, Canning and Eliza Fok House (referred to by students as 'Canning and Eliza') which was fully opened to graduates for the start of the new academic year in 2008.
It can accommodate 40 graduate students, in groups of 8 en-suite bedrooms which share a very spacious kitchen / living area. All study bedrooms have both a large and a smaller full height window, making them well-lit and pleasant spaces. On the ground floor, the MCR (Graduate Common Room) offers a wonderfully light and modern space for social gatherings. The entire building enjoys exceptional views over the College's grounds.
The accommodation is situated in the heart of the College grounds with easy access to all college facilities, including the Dining Hall and Library and all rooms have high-speed connections to the College computer network, offering our graduate students the best living and studying conditions possible.
Other facilities include several storage rooms for luggage, a laundry room, a covered bike shed and a computer room adjacent to the comfortable and well equipped common room that has its own kitchen, television and spacious seating area.
Our accommodation provides a home from home atmosphere and encourages daily informal contacts which can grow into lifelong friendships for generations of postgraduate students. We provide you with this 2014 Graduate Home from Home Accommodation Guide that should answer some of your questions as well as give you helpful information once you are in residence.
We have a small number of more economic rooms available for graduate students in houses close to the College. Please see the schedule of current rents and charges.
If you have requested accommodation on your College Offer Acceptance Form, and you have met all the conditions of your University offer by 20 August, we can confirm that you will be allocated a room at College. The Accommodation Office will contact you after 20 August with information about your allocated room. As this will be a very busy time, please allow a week for them to email you before you contact them.
While we usually have enough accommodation for all new offer-holders who wish to live in College, please note that we cannot guarantee you a room if you have not met all the conditions of your offer by 20 August.
For those beginning their course in Lent or Easter Term, accommodation will be available as much as availability allows. If you request accommodation in College, either the Graduate Services Office or Accommodation Office will be in touch with you.
