Stephenson College


College facilities are open to all members of the college community.

Stephenson Central is the heart of the College and is home to the College Reception and both staff and JCR offices. It is also the hub of student activity across our three platforms and a good base for students between lectures.

Platform 1: This is where you’ll find the Café; opening daily, it serves hot and cold drinks, snacks and hot food. By night Platform 1 hosts live sports and regular quiz nights, open mic nights and games such as pool. The bar opens on an evening serving food and drinks.

Platform 2: A multi-functional space, this platform offers a study area when not being used for special events, Locomotion Dinners or performance space.

Platform 3: A more intimate space for group discussions such as the regular Book Club, as well as a forum for seminars and guest speakers.

Music Room: Allowing our budding musicians of all abilities to practice their music.

The Gym: Membership of the gym at Howlands is currently £20 for the academic year, for members of Stephenson JCR or MCR and £40 for non members (academic year 2018/19).

Sports Areas: Stephenson share indoor and outdoor sports areas for team training or causal sports for fun.
