The rooms in college vary in size and aspect. The college buildings date from the 17th century onwards, with the most recent addition, the Old Members' Building (Ship Street Centre), added in the 20th century. The rooms are regularly refurbished to a high standard.

In Second Quad, the rooms are 'double sets': a shared living room with separate bedrooms. Each student has their own working area in the living room. In Third Quad, rooms are single bedroom/studies with washbasins, furnished with a single bed, a desk, chairs, drawers and a wardrobe.

About 25% of the rooms on the main site have en-suite facilities (priority will be given to those with medical needs). The remaining rooms on the central site have shared bathroom facilities on each staircase. These rooms have a basin in the room.  Staircases are mixed-sex, except where baths or showers do not have separate access. The College guarantees students sharing a set will be of the same sex.
