From Magdalen College JCR

If you are looking for accommodation, and you are not an undergraduate at Magdalen college, this webpage is not useful to you! This website is a base of information about undergraduate accommodation at Magdalen college. It's best for you to instead email 'outreach ""', if, for example, you are a newly joined postgraduate or faculty member.

If you were familiar with the previous JCR website, you will know that we had a browser where you could view enormous amounts of information and pictures of our accommodation. The old accommodation database as of November 16th 2023 is available in full here. The associated images are available in full here.

Some basic information

The College guarantees undergraduate students accommodation for the duration of their degree. As a fresher, you will live outside the College site, with most of the freshers living in the Waynflete building across Magdalen Bridge and the rest in houses on High St. and Longwall St.

The charges for all single rooms include weekly cleaning, utilities, bed linen, which is changed weekly, and a mini-fridge. All undergraduate rooms are charged at the same rate, with a random ballot system and reverse ballot system being used for room selection in second and third year respectively. The latest prices for Magdalen accommodation can be found on the College website.
