Please complete the form below should you wish to stay in College accommodation between the end of Easter Term (26 June) and the start of Michaelmas Term (1 October).

There are a number of groups whom are permitted to return to College before the start of the official Period of Residence for Michaelmas Term (1 October 2022).
