Single rooms

Fitzwilliam is usually able to provide a single room to every graduate student who needs one. If your course begins in the Michaelmas term but you are unable to confirm your admission by 1 September, you will still be offered accommodation if it is available. Once all rooms have been allocated, the College operates a waiting list. In recent years, rooms have been found for everyone on the list.

Rooms on the main College site

There are 45 rooms for graduate students on the main College site. They are located on staircases with around six rooms on each floor, sharing kitchen and bathroom facilities. Some of the more expensive rooms have their own showers, and one room is fully en suite.
