Affordable Student Living

Over time, with the increase in the number of applications and expansion of places that has taken place across the University in both undergraduate and graduate admissions, the Hall has grown to become the fifth largest college in terms of student numbers. However, it is one of the smallest in terms of physical footprint and is now in the bottom third of colleges in terms of provision of affordable on-site accommodation.


We can currently only accommodate 60% of our students, and very few undergraduates have the option to live in college accommodation (which has hugely important educational and financial benefits) for the entirety of their course.  


Central to our 2029 ambitions is our aspiration to attract a diverse array of highly talented students and staff, underscored by being an exemplar of sustainability and diversity.  It is quite possible that this lack of accommodation is a contributing factor to the decline in number of applicants who make St Edmund Hall their first choice of college.


Affordable, sustainable accommodation for all students is essential to bring the Hall into the 21st century and continue to attract the very brightest minds regardless of background. Your support will help us to secure these key Aularian values and mark our strategy for the future.


Your support for this project will help us:

 Continue to renovate student rooms across our Queen’s Lane and satellite sites to bring them up to modern, energy efficient standards.

 Create affordable living for all Teddy Hall undergraduates through the expansion of our Norham Garden site.

 Attract the best students from a wide range of backgrounds who are enticed by the Hall’s high sustainability standards and sense of place. 

 Improve student welfare by ensuring all accommodation is befitting of the highest mental health and sustainability standards. 

 Secure income in perpetuity by creating spaces for the Hall’s conferencing business to thrive and attract the very best academics from around the world.
