Undergraduate Accommodation

Undergraduate Accommodation

Student rooms are priced by bands based on the size of the room, the room’s location, and whether or not it has en-suite bath or shower facilities. You can see information about the bands, current prices, and the various types of college rooms in the accommodation pages of the website. In the Spring, the College will set the band prices for the new academic year, and at that point the room allocation process for new students will be opened.

Undergraduate applicants who are offered a place to study will accept via UCAS. Shortly after your acceptance has been received by the College you will be contacted by the accommodation team and asked to complete an Accommodation Preference Form where you indicate which price bands you prefer for your College accommodation. (Those who accept before the room allocation process for new students is opened will be emailed when it is opened.)

During the Summer your application to study will be processed by the University and Hughes Hall, and you will have been asked to complete documentation related to your application as outlined in your offer letters. That process is separate from the College room allocation process. However, when you have been fully confirmed as a student by the College, submitted your Accommodation Preference Form, and if there are rooms available, we will send you an email notifying you of the process to secure a room in the allocation.

If you have queries about the process you can contact the accommodation team at rooms@hughes.cam.ac.uk.

If you have disability requirements related to accommodation you should contact the College’s Disability Equality Officer equality.officer@hughes.cam.ac.uk who will help you provide the necessary information to enable the college to provide suitable accommodation. Sometimes this requires specific medical information which can take time to secure. The earlier you contact the Disability Equality Officer, the easier it will be to complete the process and to secure suitable accommodation.

When all rooms have been allocated we will notify anyone still awaiting confirmation as soon as possible and provide guidance on finding accommodation from other sources.
