Official Guests


The Accommodation Office provides guest accommodation for official visitors to College departments and societies. These Guest Rooms are located in the older residential areas of College and are available throughout the year. Criteria, approved by the College Board, exist for the use of College Guest Rooms. Download Criteria for the use of college guest rooms (PDF). At present, there are Guest Rooms located in House 40 (New Square) only. House 23 (Rubrics) is being renovated at present. Please visit the College Maps website to view their location on the campus

Guests may check-in to their accommodation from 12pm onwards. Keys may be collected from the Accommodation Office prior to 1pm on weekdays Monday to Friday. At other times the keys can be collected from the Security Lodge at Front Gate. To prevent confusion Guest Room keys cannot be collected by the College host prior to the arrival of the guest in College. Each guest will receive a welcome letter containing the keys to their rooms, confirmation of the length of the stay, location of their accommodation, breakfast details and where appropriate an invoice.

Cooked breakfast will be served in the dining room on the ground floor of House 40 between 7.30am and 9.30am.

Guests are requested to checkout by 10am on the day of departure. Keys should be left either in the Guest Rooms, Accommodation Office or at Front Gate.

Guests settling their own account need to pay for their accommodation in advance by card.

Guests may not remain beyond the date of their booking unless arrangements have been made in advance with the Accommodation Office.

    2. The guest can be invoiced by the Accommodation Office to settle their account directly on the advice of the department making the reservation. Payments by guests must be made in advance.
