Anyone know what it's like to live as a graduate within Jesus college? Is it ok? What are the rooms like?

Hi KB

Are you living in college or in one of the annexes?
Either way, accommodation is pretty good. Grads often live on staircases XIX, XX and XXI or in Ship Street. The Cowley Road Jesus annexe for both grads and undergrads is top notch. I've just finished at Jesus, feel free to PM me if there's anything else i can help you with.

How did you manage to switch colleges before starting? The accomodation is reasonably good, from what I've heard, and with very reasonable rents.

Maybe she just switched accommodation. It is possible to do that- esp if Jesus has unoccupied rooms.

What would the procedure be for doing that?

Probably it is applicable only for post-grads. A classmate of mine from St Cross wasn't given accommodation by the college & so wrote to every other college- and had quite a many offering him great rooms on site! He finally moved to Linacre (this was around 2 weeks after the 0th week- so maybe students mightn't have turned up)

I'll give that a go, I think.

Good luck! The success lies in writing to them in the 0th week or later.

I didn't know you could do that! But what if I've already applied for college accommodation and paid part of my rent? Can I still switch?
