Accommodation for Visiting Students

We offer accommodation to all our Visiting Students for the whole of their time in Oxford as follows:

  • Students visiting for the full academic year (three terms) may stay in their room throughout, including during the Christmas and Easter vacations.
  • Students visiting for two terms only may stay in their room throughout, including the Easter vacation.
  • Students visiting for one term only must vacate at the end of Michaelmas Term.

All our rooms are spacious single study-bedrooms, connected to the University’s internet network. Furnishings include a bed, desk, chair, lamp, storage space and a washbasin.

Where will I live?

You will have a room in one of our annexes, a short walk from the main College site, where you will be housed alongside other undergraduates so that you'll quickly feel part of the Teddy Hall community. Both buildings have a common room and kitchenette facilities.

As part of your accommodation costs, you will pay for 50 dinners per term. Teddy Hall has an award-winning Head Chef and a reputation for some of the best college food in Oxford. We encourage students to eat in College, and no refunds are available if you choose not to.

Breakfast and lunch may also be bought in College if you wish, by adding money to your University (Bod) card.
