Although students are required to vacate their rooms outside of term time, students are permitted to remain in College over the vacations. Please see the Vacation Residence Policy for further details.

Check your allowance



All Students at St Hugh’s

Every Undergraduate student is eligible for 21 nights vacation residence during the first three years of their degree, free of charge.


Fourth Year Students

Each fourth year student is granted an extra 7 nights allowance.


Scholars & Exhibitioners

Every scholar and exhibitioner is entitled to an additional 7 nights vac res allowance/year. These must be used within one year and before the use of normal entitlement.


International Students

Every international student will be allowed 1 extra night/term of free vacation residence, this is to help with the complications caused by long-distance travel.


Those who are obliged to stay for exams in 9th and 10th week, and extended terms can extend their contracts to cover these periods. Please see the Vacation Residence Policy for further details.

It should be noted that students will not be guaranteed their term time room if they are granted permission to remain in College for the vacation.

Those living in Maplethorpe and the Rachel Trickett Building are particularly liable to be moved from their usual room as the buildings are frequently in use over the vacation for conferences.

Room Ballots

The room ballot is organised during Trinity Term every year by the JCR vice-president.
