Do I need to buy my own bedding for Oxford University accommodation?

Hi, I'm aware this is probably a bit of a stupid question, but I recently attended one of the Oxford Uni offer holder days for St Anne's college and the way the Head of Accommodation was talking about cleaning / doing the laundry really made it sound like the college would be providing bed sheets / duvet covers for us. I am trying to get organised and as such am starting to buy things I will need at uni and I am wondering whether or not it is therefore necessary to buy bed linens. I will likely buy some anyways to be able to have a bit of control over my space and to add my own touch, but it's always good to know. Can anyone clarify? Thanks! :smile:

My college didn't provide bed sheets or duvet covers - I imagine this is probably also true of Anne's, but you can email them to confirm.

I bought the following:

bed sheets (single)

mattress protector

duvet

duvet cover

pillow

pillow cases

Thank you so much! I wanted to ask on the day, but it just seemed like such a stupid thing to get hung up on 😂

Some colleges do provide bedding (and may not be happy with you bringing your own) so best to check before you buy anything.
