Our Residence

Our Residence - The Oxford Tradition


Students on The Oxford Tradition program live in the storied dormitories of Pembroke College. These accommodations are occupied by university undergraduates during the year. They are dorm-style, single or double rooms with shared facilities. Single or double rooms with private bathrooms are available at an additional cost and are subject to availability.

The location boasts its own cafe and offers direct and easy access to the rest of the university and the city. It is next door to Christ Church College, one of the many Oxford locations where Harry Potter was filmed.

Pembroke is a 5-minute walk from the Thames, where students can go jogging or engage in the great Oxford tradition of punting on the river.

The famous Covered Market, with its myriad food stalls, is 5 minutes’ walk from the College. A local favorite, G&D’s Ice Cream Café, is right next door.

Founded in 1624 by King James I, Pembroke boasts former Prime Minister William Pitt the Younger, American Senator J. William Fulbright, and Samuel Johnson - author of The Dictionary of the English Language - among its alums.

We are currently evaluating all aspects of our programs and incorporating the most up-to-date health and safety standards. We’ll continue to make changes as guidance evolves from the CDC and WHO, as well as our many partners, including local and national officials from our host campuses and countries. If anything changes from what is listed on the website, we will inform enrolled students via email as soon as possible. Click here to learn more about our health and safety efforts.
