For 2021-22, the cost of a room for a Visiting Student will be £6,660 (£180 per week for a 37 week lease).

A variably-priced menu is available for all meals except Formal Hall. You can expect meal costs to be in the following order:

  • Breakfast: £3.00
  • Lunch: £3.90
  • Dinner (informal): £4.02

Payment for meals is on a ‘pay-as-you-go’ basis. 

Please note that extra costs will be incurred through purchase of books, personal expenditure and travel expenses. You should probably budget at least an extra £3,000 for spending in this way.
