All of our housing is located within a 10 minute walk of the central area of Oxford, defined as St. Anne’s College on the North, Magdalen Bridge on the East, the Railroad Station on the West and Folly Bridge on the South. In most terms, almost all the housing will be within that central area, or within a five minute walk of it.
Listed below are some of our most popular properties.
There are several overseas study programs in Oxford. However, almost all of their students live with older graduate students in properties located outside the central area. The OSAP program, we believe, has arranged the best housing for study abroad students in Oxford.More info
37 St. Giles is a beautiful and historic 18th Century 10-bed Georgian mansion located in the very center of Oxford, near St. John’s College. It was completely refurbished in 2008. It is rented (with a long term lease) by OSAP from Christ Church and is a college annex. Recently The Times Higher Education Review sponsored a contest to find the best new student residence hall in the UK. This Christ Church College Annex was listed as a finalist (one of the top six such buildings in Great Britain). 37 St. Giles has two full bathrooms, a separate toilet, lounge, a large double kitchen and a utility room. It has a very large backyard with decking, suitable for outdoor dining.More Info
"The JCR provided a warm welcome, socially, academically, and athletically, without any regard to associate member status."
"I would say OSAP is better because there is more integration with British students and a better safety net. Plus, the housing is better."
OSAP is pleased to report that all OSAP programmes for the 2020-21 Academic Year (Michaelmas Term 2020, Hilary Term 2021, and Trinity Term 2021) are scheduled to continue as normal, and online applications are open.
