Students will be accommodated in New College, Oxford. Founded by William of Wykham in 1379, it is one of the largest, best known and most beautiful of the Oxford colleges*. The college is located in the centre of Oxford, close to the St Cross Law Faculty Building, where classes are held and in which the Bodleian Law Library is located.
Students are accommodated in single study bedrooms at New College. Many of the bedrooms have ensuite (private) bathrooms but such a room can only be guaranteed if the supplementary ensuite bathroom fee is paid.
Breakfast, lunch and dinner are provided every day in either New College or St Catherine's College*.
* Please note: In 2013, New College is undergoing renovation of its kitchens and dining hall. During this time, a temporary kitchen and a temporary dining area will be in use. Every effort will be made to keep the college functioning as normally as possible but students may miss out on some of the beauty and serenity which are normally an attractive part of the New College experience. Please accept the college’s apologies in advance for any disruption. As a result of the renovation work, students will take all lunches and some dinners at St Catherine's College, a short distance away.
Students will be enrolled as readers at the University's main reference library, the Bodleian, which includes the Bodleian Law Library. The Law Library is located in the St Cross Building, a short distance from where classes are held for the programme.
Computing facilities are provided at New College but we strongly recommend that students bring laptop for which Internet access is provided in all bedrooms.
Students with disabilities
The department's aim is to treat all participants equally and welcomes applications from people with disabilities. Individuals' needs are taken into account as far as possible, providing reasonable adaptations and assistance within the resources available. We ask that people let us know of any disability or special need (confidentially if required) so that we can help them participate as fully as possible.
Students with mobility difficulties may find areas of Oxford difficult to access as it is an ancient city with a number of very old buildings which were designed in an age less sensitive to issues of disability. Similarly, students may also find that the age and layout of New College means they are not able to access all areas of the college. However, ground floor bedrooms and a lift to the dining hall are available and the Department will do as much as possible to assist students with special requirements.
All of the teaching rooms used for the programme are equipped with facilities that improve access for students with disabilities including lifts, access ramps and hearing loops. The Department can also provide reading materials in alternative formats (such as Braille or large print) and can arrange special examination provision.
Prospective participants with mobility difficulties, visual or hearing impairments, or any other disabilities which require special arrangements, may want to make preliminary enquiries to the Oxford Programme Administrator at email@example.com or +44 (0)1865 270281 for further advice.
