For some, when searching for a school or college, finding suitable accommodation to assist with studies is the first thing on their mind, whilst for others it can be left on the backburner with the sourcing of academic quality taking precedence.

At Greene’s College Oxford, we believe that finding the right accommodation is as important as choosing the provider of a student’s education; a comfortable, safe living space is likely to be conducive to productivity and learning both inside and outside of the classroom.

Here are four of the best options for student accommodation for those looking to study at Greene’s in Oxford:

1. Oxford Homestay

(For students under the age of 18)

With over 400 registered families, Oxford Homestay connects students with warm and welcoming host families across Oxfordshire. Host family accommodation allows oversea visitors to practice their English and make friends with local people and allows native and younger students to find familiar comforts. Accommodation in the city offers an incredible and unforgettable stay in the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’. Residence is also offered in Oxford’s surrounding villages and towns, where horse-riding, swimming, and spas offer a healthy balance of adventure and relaxation. Greene’s have a cherished relationship with Oxford Homestay and many of our students value the enrichment achieved during their stay.
