The Worcester accommodation is some of the best in the university. Undergraduates can live in college accommodation for three years of their degree, either within the college grounds or less than 300 meters from it. There’s a massive range of different rooms, so everyone’s needs can probably be accommodated. Every room has a mini fridge and sink access. Bear in mind the range of prices: the difference between living in a grade 1 room compared to a grade 6 room adds up to a massive £1520 saved per year.

Some rooms have access to kitchens (with ovens, freezers, hobs etc). If you don’t have the luxury of a kitchen, you will get discounted Hall prices.
