Where you will live
We provide over five hundred bedrooms for our students, located at the main site on Catte Street and at a number of other residential annexes and properties around the city centre.
Since 1995, we’ve been proud to provide accommodation to all undergraduate students that require it. All our undergraduate freshers (first-year students) are housed on our main college site, right in the heart of Oxford. You’ll be at the centre of our college community, close to the common room and dining hall, and living alongside other new students. Postgraduate freshers are accommodated either at our dedicated Graduate Centre in South Oxford, or at one of our college houses near the University science area or train station – all of which are less than a mile and a half from the main college site.
All bedrooms and communal areas are serviced on a daily basis by scouts, members of our college housekeeping team. To find out more about the costs of accommodation, as well as other financial information, you can consult the finance pages for undergraduate and postgraduate students.
You can browse our frequently asked questions about living at Hertford, which should answer most of your questions. If you can’t find the answer you need, you can contact our Accommodation Officer who will be pleased to help you.
The Oxford University website offers a 360° virtual tour of Hertford, where you can see the dining hall, library, JCR, chapel, and an example of a student room. Prospective students are always welcome to visit college – get in touch with undergraduate admissions or postgraduate admissions to arrange a visit. If you’re a prospective undergraduate student, we’d love to welcome you at one of our Open Days.
We provide a basic level of insurance for students’ possessions (including bikes, laptops, phones etc.) as well as some personal cover. The insurance is provided through Endsleigh, and you can add extra cover to suit your own needs (or simply check what is included) by visiting their website and entering the College’s policy number (HH1587). Please do make sure your insurance arrangements are sufficient for your needs.
