Undergraduate Room Types & Charges

Pembroke offers College-owned accommodation to undergraduate students for three years of their degree. 

Rooms are available for undergraduates either on the main Pembroke College site or at the Sir Geoffrey Arthur Building (otherwise known at the GAB), a modern riverside building a short walk from the main site.



  • All 1st year undergraduate students live in rooms on the main site. 2nd year and final year students choose between main site and GAB accommodation (see below).

  • Rooms on the main College are all fully-furnished. They vary in terms of size and facilities, so are split into different price 'bands', from A-F.

  • Students in main site accommodation are fully catered for in Hall and take out a pre-paid meal plan. Find out more about catering at Pembroke here.

  • Although they are catered for, and therefore kitchens are not located on each staircase, students may make use of the several kitchens dotted around the main site.

  • There are a total of five rooms for wheelchair users, and there is wheelchair access to all parts of the College site. Pembroke also has hard-of-hearing adapted rooms.

If you have any questions about facilities, accessibility or availability of rooms at Pembroke, please contact accommodation@pmb.ox.ac.uk for more information.
