University of Oxford
7.7 / 10 Overall Satisfaction
(based on 218 ratings in 2016)
In a few words
"As every college's accommodation is different, it varies I suppose! The annoying thing with living in college owned accommodation, is having to move around when they want you to over the holidays, because many generate a hefty amount of income from people staying during conference periods. The city is great, a nice in-between size (although people travelling from a larger city may find it a bit small). The students union isn't great, but each college is like its own mini student union so you don't really notice. And obviously, it's all really beautiful. You get the joy of walking past tourists to go and work in the beautiful buildings they're taking pictures of."
