The residential campus provides an historic and scholarly, yet relaxed and peaceful, living and working environment. Secure and self-contained, it gives students an inspiring taste of life as an Oxford undergraduate, an unforgettable and maturing experience.
Each student has a comfortable single study bedroom. Situated next to the historic Oxford Union, the world-famous student debating club, the Frewin Court annexe consists of good-sized rooms which are well-appointed and built around a central grassy area. It is a safe and quiet residence, whilst being within yards of the centre of the city. In addition to student rooms, there is a pleasant common room area with TV and games for evening leisure time.
Breakfast is taken in college daily and dinner during the week. Dinner is taken out of college as part of the mid-week visit, giving variety to students' experience. Students make their own arrangements for dinner at weekends. There are a number of affordable cafés and restaurants in the centre of Oxford and students are given a list of good choices upon arrival, both internationally-known names and local favourites.
Residential Deans live alongside students and keep a careful eye on their welfare and safety, ensuring the smooth and harmonious organisation of this aspect of the course. All our Deans are British university graduates, with experience of working with young people in this capacity. Students invariably strike up positive working relationships with the Deans, who encourage and expect them to behave in a responsible way to ensure the well-being of the group and play their part in forming a harmonious community.
