Postgraduate Accommodation 2020/2021

St Chad’s College offers accommodation to postgraduate students engaged in full-time (taught or research) degrees. Accommodation comprises: some rooms in Main College, a house on Hallgarth Street and Trinity Hall, a self-contained property on the south side of the River Wear and within easy walking distance of Main College.

All rooms are offered for 50 weeks of the year. The basic period of occupancy is from Wednesday 23rd September 2020 until Tuesday 7th September 2021 (these dates are particular to the College).

Students for whom their course does not tie in directly to these dates should contact the Postgraduate Director for advice on the availability of rooms. It may be, for example, that an early arrival can be accommodated in a different room to that designated for the full term of the let.

Main College provides numerous sporting, social, exercise, musical, welfare, administrative, computing and library facilities open to all postgraduates regardless of where they live. Trinity Hall mirrors several of these facilities for Trinity Hall residents only.

College offers postgraduate students accommodation only up to a maximum of three academic years (or part years) during any one course of study. The College does NOT offer accommodation to students on continuation.

Students who are unsuccessful in obtaining College accommodation in their first year will be given priority in the allocation of accommodation in subsequent years if they wish to move into College.

Main College

Rooms in Main College are located on a dedicated postgraduate corridor and are offered on a part-catered let during undergraduate terms. During vacations, postgraduate students in these rooms cater for themselves. These rooms have shared bath/shower and toilet facilities.

Hallgarth Street

This house is a four/five minute walk from the College’s main site and houses five postgraduate students on a self-catered basis.

Trinity Hall

Rooms in Trinity Hall are offered on a self-catering basis with excellent shared kitchen and dining facilities on site. Virtually all rooms are en suite with shower, washbasin and toilet in each case. Shared laundry facilities are provided. There are three price bands for the en suite rooms according to the size of the rooms. In all cases, the rooms are well-proportioned with excellent character.

Teikyo & Grads (hybrid)

We are, unusually, in a position to offer self-catered accommodation on the Bailey for part of the academic year 2020/2021. This opportunity arises because of refurbishment of one of our buildings. However the newly refurbished rooms will not be available until January 2021*, so we have put together a package deal:

Students will spend their first term in accommodation run by Teikyo University of Japan. This is about a 12-15 minute walk from Main College or a short bus ride and a 3-4 minute walk (students can travel all day on Arriva buses for £1).

  • Breakfast will be provided in Main College
  • Lunch will be self-catered
  • Dinner will be provided in Main College
  • Students will have full membership of St Chad’s College. They will be able to use College libraries and study spaces and will be able to access College and MCR events, the Middle Common Room, administrative support and welfare support.
  • For the remainder of the year, students will occupy newly-refurbished self-catered accommodation on North Bailey, moving early in the Epiphany Term 2021. It will also be possible to have catered accommodation (at extra cost).

We believe this package represents excellent value for money.

* Covid-19 related delays now mean that this work may not be completed until later in the Epiphany term.

PGCE students should be aware that lets are only available on a 50 week basis – it is, however, often possible to sub-let the room for the summer (subject to College approval).
