Christ Church is a stunning place to live and study in. Throughout your studies you can live in college accommodation, either in the centre of Oxford or in annexes not far from the centre. Built over five centuries and widely modernised, you'll have a comfortable room to call home.

College rooms

Most accommodation is found on the main college site, but some students live in modern self-catering flats a short distance away. 

One flat is equipped for up to three disabled residents, and single rooms for disabled students are available on the main site. 

In their first year, most undergrads live in Blue Boar Quad. The modern block, designed by Hidalgo Moya and Philip Powell in the 1960s, offers comfortable bedrooms with compact en-suite facilities.

All college rooms have a bed, wardrobe, desk, coffee table, armchair, wash hand-basin, and shaver point. Some have an en-suite shower and toilet; for the rest, bathrooms, showers, and toilets are abundant and conveniently located. A fridge is provided in each room, and students may bring a kettle.
