Accommodation and Facilities

Usually occupied by Oxford University undergraduates, our central facilities allow summer school students to benefit from the opportunity to live as a university student in the beautiful city of Oxford. 

Central Oxford location

We are hosted each year by Lincoln College, one of the University of Oxford's constituent colleges.

Set on a quiet side street, we are 5 minutes from:

  • The Ashmolean Museum
  • The Natural History Museum
  • Oxford University Parks
  • Oxford's pedestrianised shopping street

Our summer school couldn't be better in a location from which to explore the City and University.

Students sleep, eat, and relax all in Lincoln College.

All the rooms are:

Safety and security

Safety and well-being of our students is our number one priority.
We have one of the most secure sites in Oxford, with all amenities on site.

Our summer school are the only group to use to the site, and access is via a Porters' Lodge which is staffed 24/7. 

All students on the summer school are given keys to their own individual room, and fobs for accessing the site. The porters close the main door at 10pm every night, and the entire site is protected by CCTV.  

Our staff live on site, and students register with duty staff three times a day, and sign in/out every time they arrive at or leave the campus.
