Graduate Room Types & Charges

There is a range of College accommodation available for a proportion of graduate students at Pembroke, allocated on a first come first served basis as all College and departmental conditions are met. If you are not allocated a College room there are many other University-owned properties specifically for graduates, which can be seen on the Oxford University Graduate Accommodation Office pages. 

There is an additional utilities charge of £405 per annum for all contracts (this charge includes contents insurance for personal belongings). Charges quoted on this page are for 2019/20.

More information about accommodation available and how to apply for it will be distributed via email after offers have been made. If you have further questions, please contact accommodation@pmb.ox.ac.uk
