Oxford Accommodation Update

So even though I do not get to Oxford until September, and my college accommodation will not be ready until October 1, I got an email from Kellogg College today, with a picture of what my ‘home’ for the next year looks like, and pages of dos and don’ts while living in college accommodation.  Having had my own place for the past 10 years, needless to say, a lot of the rules were strange.

I will be having an ensuite room (with my private bathroom), but share the living room, refrigerator, laundry,etc with about 19 other graduate students.

Oxford Home @ Kellogg College

Each Study bedroom will contain (where space allows):

• Single bed & mattress,

• Bedside cabinet and lamp,

• One wardrobe,

• Desk with integrated chest of drawers & lamp,

• 2 noticeboards & bookshelves.

Each kitchen/communal area will be equipped with:

• Oven/grill & hob,

• Fridge/freezer,

• Microwave oven,

• Rice cooker,

• Iron & ironing board,

• Kettle.


By the way, since I plan to arrive Oxford ten days before my accommodation is ready, I still have to find somewhere convenient to stay for those days.  At this point, unless I find a better alternative, I may be renting an ensuite room at St Antony’s College, Oxford for those days.
