Rent Bands

Single-occupancy rooms at Magdalene are divided into nine rent bands. Couples' flats are divided into three.

Following extensive discussion and consultation with the MCR and JCR on KFC reform, the College has agreed student rent charges for 2021/22. Weekly room rents will incorporate an amount equivalent to the Kitchen Fixed Charge and Internet Charge so that from 2021/22 there is one figure per rent band and not itemised. This rent charge will be for 10 weeks a term. Any period in accommodation above 10 weeks in a term will be charged at the same rate but with a £19 per week discount applied.
