Growing successful partnerships with tutorial colleges in Oxford is key to the way we work. The style of accommodation we offer is aimed primarily at this sector, and we are actively seeking college clients for whom we can provide high quality, reliable and trustworthy student accommodation.
We currently have an excellent working partnership with Oxford Tutorial College and have been housing their students in our managed residential (boarding) accommodation for several years.
We are actively looking to establish similar relationships with other college clients on the same basis and have the capacity to expand our service to cater for more students in Oxford.
If you would be interested in discussing how we could work together, please get in touch for an initial conversation.
Reassuring & supportiveSince I first knew Sharon in 2005, I have been heartened by her realistic approach to our students. She is aware they can be homesick and may be isolated so encourages them to engage with their new surroundings and fellow house mates. Students find her approachable and supportive as she offers constructive advice. Parents who contact her are reassured by this and many will call me to ensure rooms are available for their student children for subsequent terms.
Top qualityWe are a Sixth Form College in Central Oxford with around 200 students; we have used the accommodation provided by Sharon for 10 years – and a variety of different types of accommodation. This has ranged from straightforward ‘host family’ accommodation to completely managed residential (boarding) accommodation. Sharon provides us with top quality accommodation, food and service but what has always made it a simple decision for us to work with her has been the relationship we have. No problem is too small for her and problems are all resolved very quickly. We have more recently been able to work together to develop the range of accommodation we offer in partnership with her and for us this is a very exciting development. We look forward to working with Sharon for many years to come.
When we recommend Sharon to one of our students I know they are going to get well looked after, with high quality accommodation. Sharon’s properties are unique – furnished to a very high standard, well maintained and immaculately clean. Her team are all focused on taking care of the student – I am confident our students will feel at home, feel safe and will love their room!
Working closely with partner organisations means that we can tailor the service we offer to your exact needs.
We can offer short or longer-term places in our properties, with the number of places as flexible as you need, from 2 to 18. As we have individual flats, separate houses and blocks, we can accommodate groups of students in adjacent houses or flats.
We can also plan the catering arrangements to suit your requirements, from self-catering to fully catered or anything in between.
We would love to discuss your needs over a coffee. Please contact us to find out more.
Going the extra mileI got a call from Angela Salter, the accommodation manager at Oxford Tutorial College, to say that a student had not turned up for the exam and was possibly going to be late and be unable to take it. I was near the property he was living in, so I went and woke him up. He’d missed his alarm because his phone was set on silent! I got him to get dressed, gave him a Mars Bar and an energy drink for a makeshift breakfast, got him into my car and drove him to college. He made it with 15 minutes to spare. I calmed him down before the exam. He passed it and made it into University.
If you are visiting Oxford during July or August, why not book one of our properties as an alternative to a hotel or bed & breakfast? Read more...
