Accommodation and Food
We offer accommodation to both undergraduates and postgraduates, in a variety of locations and prices, and no Magdalene accommodation is more than a 5 minute walk from the main College courts.
Magdalene College has been certified as following the National Code of Standards for Larger Student Developments by Accreditation Network UK (ANUK). ANUK’s website and more information about the Code can be found here.
Undergraduate accommodation at Magdalene is incredibly varied, ranging from spacious bedroom and sitting-room sets in the medieval First Court, to modern en-suite rooms in quiet Cripps Court. The cost of College accommodation is also varied, so there are rooms that suit every budget.
Magdalene tries to provide accommodation for as many graduate students as possible. The majority of graduate accommodation is reserved for new graduate students. Roughly a third of graduate rooms are allocated to students going into their second and third years.
There are a variety of catering options at Magdalene, from the option of candlelit formal dinners each night in term to an excellent cafeteria open all year round. Food from the College kitchens is subsidised, and all student accommodation also provides access to basic self-catering facilities.
Magdalene is extremely well situated, just a short walk from the main town centre without being in the middle of one of the main tourist hotspots. The College itself is surrounded by a wealth of local shops and places to eat, study, exercise, or meet up with friends.
