St Stephen's House

St Stephen’s House is an Anglican foundation specialising in Theology. Many of the college's Theology students are training for ordination in the Church of England or other churches of the Anglican Communion, but applications are welcomed for all graduate courses in Theology and related disciplines.

The college also welcomes applicants for the PGCE in all subjects offered by the University, and in the MSc and DPhil in Education. Prospective students need not be Anglican but will be in sympathy with the educational and spiritual ethos of St Stephen's House.

Accommodation and meals

Accommodation in study bedrooms is available on a half-board basis in the main college building on a term-only or year-round basis. There are also some one-, two- and three-bedroom flats and houses on campus; this accommodation is particularly suitable for students with children. 

Accommodation is allocated on a first-come, first-served basis, though it is generally available for most students for the duration of their fee liability.

Meals are provided in the college's hall for all students, with early breakfast provision for PGCE students. The college is also currently able to offer parking facilities for most students.
