St Cross College (Oxford) Students and ApplicantsWatch this thread
Yeah, I saw that, but it's too much for me. My room is only 250/month
this topic is quite old...are you two still at St Cross? I might be joining in October.
I'll be starting the MSc African Studies in October, can't wait!
What is the deal with housing? It seems like a lot of first years have to get a place in town?
couples accommodation not fun...we're viewing a couple of places next week but i wonder whether we're acting too soon really :s
Based on what i've read so far from folks on TSR, we're leaning toward going into a temp room for a week or two and then looking and moving into an apartment; but we're still trying to figure it all out.
Could you tell me more about the college, and its pros and cons?
It does not seem to be among the most prestigious. Is that actually an important component?
Thank you very much in advance for your input!
It does have a lot going for it though, its grounds are of a high standard and being a centrally located college is close to every shop in Oxford and most of the libraries.
They were supposed to be developing new buildings for accommodation and studying this year but the last I heard the council rejected the plans and they were appealing it :/ but I'm sure that will actually happen during your time there.
How 'prestigious' a college is, is of no importance. Your successes within your chosen field is all that matters.
