Many of our properties are made up of 10-15 single or double study rooms with shared kitchens, communal living areas and bathrooms, which help to create close College households.

We also have family flats on the main college site – providing accommodation for up to four people – and self-contained double flats.

Housekeeping services are provided throughout the year in the common areas of the student buildings.

All student properties have access to the stunning college gardens, bicycle parking and laundry services located under the main college building or at West Court.

Waking in the morning, I’d go to the balcony of my room and observe the true beauty of Clare Hall that is the garden in front of the Robert Honeycombe Building. Undoubtedly, I can say that the garden has the power to soothe one’s mind. Besides my room, I spent most of my time in the spacious kitchen of the RBH and the gym. I never felt alone here because of the close-knitted Clare Hall family.
