Downing College provides over 400 rooms for undergraduates and 89 rooms (including hostel keepers’ rooms and flats) for postgraduates. Of these rooms, eight have been specially adapted for disabled students.

Since four of the graduate rooms are for couples, this gives the potential to house a maximum of 93 graduate students.

Each of these rooms are banded accordingly to reflect their size, features and facilities. A full breakdown of these factors can be found in the Accommodation Handbook. 

No hidden extras

We charge a fixed, all-inclusive Residence Charge with 'no hidden extras'.  All electricity, heating water, cleaning, maintenance and network services are included in the Residence Charge.  We do not charge a termly catering facilities charge.  Typically, undergraduate students need only budget for term-time accommodation.
