Welcome to John Snow College

Welcome to John Snow College

At John Snow College, we provide an environment which enables our students to develop in every area of life, and build on their existing skills and gain new skills. There is a great variety of sport, leisure and well-being clubs and groups, and also a variety of music, theatre and art societies which new students can join. Our students are involved in a lot of volunteering and charity work, and welcome new students to get involved in this important part of College life. We have a long standing tradition of attracting students from all over the world, and we are a truly International College. Our College staff provide friendly and first class support for new students, and our priority is their personal safety and their health and well-being.

Founded in 2001, we are a modern yet traditional gowned college with self-catered accommodation. We guarantee that all of our new undergraduate students will be accommodated in a single bedroom with ensuite facilities, in a shared flat – these single rooms contain a Queen size bed (half way in size between a single and a double bed), and a personal bathroom containing a toilet, sink and shower. We also provide a number of Town House accommodation, with shared bathrooms, for students with special requirements. We understand that living arrangements are a top priority for new students, and we pride ourselves in making sure that new students share a flat or Townhouse with students who have similar preferences, for example vegetarian and vegan, single sex, nut allergy, other allergies and intolerances, and alcohol-free. Our post graduate students are offered the opportunity to live in our Townhouses. The Townhouses are slightly set back from the main part of the College which allows us to create a more mature environment in this setting. We also have a number of well-equipped accessibility bedrooms, and welcome with open arms all students with mental and physical disabilities.
