Step 1. Find the right college for you

You can select up to five accommodation preferences, so browse through our Accommodation website to view the different room options, with 2025 fees available via our fees page. We also suggest you book a tour of the Colleges, if you are in the area. 

Step 2. Prepare your application

The Residential Colleges Application Guide 2025 is now available. To ensure diversity of our on-campus community, we will strive for balance among genders, as well as domestic and international cohorts and returning and new resident cohorts.

The Residential Colleges may consider the following when reviewing applications:

  • academic performance and/or progression
  • suitability for residential life
  • tenancy history
  • other considerations, based on University priorities

For new residents, please have the following ready for your application:

  • A reference letter from an independent authority (e.g. school or landlord)
  • A copy of your most recent academic results (e.g. school report card or academic transcript)
  • Personal statement of suitability for residential life (up to 300 words)
  • Demonstrating participation in, and contribution to, school community and/or wider community (up to 300 words and up to five supporting documents)
  • Providing a reflection relating to the Residential Colleges community values (up to 100 words)

The Residential College reserves the right, in its absolute discretion, to refuse applications. Please view the Residential Colleges Application Guide 2025 to help you prepare for the application process and application question responses.
