I was wondering if any of you have an experience in living in UoC college accomadtion as a Phd student? How does it cost (if, let say I wanted to have a studio)? Is it easy to have your partner living with you? Can you cook - or are you governed by food offered by your college?

Thanks

Most Colleges have some accommodation for couples/families, but not very much, I'd say more couples and families live out than in. There won't be many Colleges with studio flats, it's a modern concept and most Colleges are mediaeval of 19th century!

Costs depends on the individual Colleges, you'd have to look at the College/MCR website to see costs. They are generally slightly less than market rate, although remember utility bills will usually be included, and internet access etc.

Generally, College kitchens are only designed to making snacks, you won't be cooking roasts and souffles in the average gyp room (the Cam name for kitchens). if you live in a hostel or a flat, you will probably have a basic, full kitchen.
