My friend and I want to go to visit Oxford and Cambridge before we apply, but we are both 17. Is there anywhere we could stay without bringing one of our parents?

Are you planning going to the open days in the summer. Worth ringing and seeing if you can stay in a college room. Lots let out rooms in the holidays to tourists. Cannot see why there would be an age restriction.

A fair few colleges will let you stay there, though you may have to pay. I know for a fact that Selwyn and Churchill do, and I'd imagine others will

Yeah, if anything they'd be more likely to let you. You might struggle getting a room in term time though, but terms are short so it's easy enough to go during their holidays.

Yes you will have to pay. Book early as the rooms wll go quickly around the open days.

You might not necessarily have to though- for my interview in December, Fitzwilliam College let me stay for free the night before. It's possible that they only make general guests pay, and let you for free if it's uni related

By the way, it's a long shot but if you're wanting to do physics, then try do the senior physics challenge. Sounds difficult, but it's really not. You then get a free 4 nights at cambridge with that

Alternatively, there's the Isaac physics boot camps. They'll get you two nights free.

For oxf*rd, or other subjects, I don't know
