As a student on this program, you are guaranteed housing within the Oxford College that has accepted you. You will be fully integrated with other Oxford students enrolled in that college. Housing over vacations is included with your housing fee. You should confirm with the Visiting Student Administrator at your college about any special arrangements for your vacation housing.
Meal plans and dining facilities differ between colleges. All residences offer limited kitchen facilities; however, dining in the communal halls is a fundamental part of Oxford student life and is strongly encouraged by all colleges.
Formal Halls are special dinners held in the dining halls of each College, typically once per week. These are very popular with visiting students. If you attend Formal Halls, you are expected to dress formally—there are centuries-old traditions associated with these events!
