Short Courses

We are able to offer a limited number of rooms for students attending short courses (less than two semesters).

We have two main options available for these shorter lets which are at Parham Road and Petros Court. We also have our Homestay option living with local residents in their home.

Accommodation is not guaranteed, and is allocated in date order, prioritising longer stays, so please apply as early as possible for accommodation online, as soon you get your University student ID number.

FAQs

Will I share with other Christ Church full academic year students?

As the academic year progresses we have a small number of rooms available where you would be sharing with other CCCU students, who are usually undergraduates from 18-21 on average. This can be a livelier social lifestyle in these flats. You pay the same weekly rent as these full year academic students, but have to provide your own bedding and kitchen packs. You can also purchase additional items in advance through a partner supplier Unikitout or from local city centre shops (reduced opening hours on Sundays). 

Please contact us direct if this accommodation is of interest.

Extending your stay?

We may be able to extend your rental period by a week either side of your studies, subject to you paying the extra charge, no other bookings from others and having valid time on your visa, if applicable. This gives a great opportunity for you to settle in before starting your studies, and also to explore the local area (we are less than 1 hour to London on the fast train.) If you wish to do this, please contact us in advance of any variation to start and end dates. If you turn up early and do not tell us, we cannot guarantee any accommodation will be ready for you.

Do you have other options for students on short courses? 

You can also look at our Homestay option where you stay with a local host or family.

You may prefer to look in renting in the private sector and a couple of websites to help you in your search can be found at:
