What should I bring to College?

What we provide

Your room will include a bed, mattress, wardrobe or other storage, easy chair, desk, desk chair, desk lamp and curtains.

Utilities and heating are included in the accommodation charge.

All rooms are fitted with an ethernet point and have access to a wireless network.

Shared pantries are equipped with a fridge/freezer, cupboards, microwave, a hob and usually an oven and grill. Some may also have kettles and toasters but these are not provided by the College - it's best to wait and see what is already here before bringing your own appliances, or you could make a group purchase with your fellow residents.

Oxford City centre, just a short walk from LMH, has a great variety of shops including Argos and Debenhams, where you can buy basic supplies and homewares at a reasonable cost. The Jericho and Summertown areas of Oxford also have many charity shops which sell second-hand goods.

Students can also purchase a bedding pack from the College for £25 which includes two pillows with pillowcases, a single duvet and cover.
