Facilities at Leckhampton
All the comforts
To keep brain and body nourished Leckhampton House offers a varied evening buffet most evenings, as well as a 2-course sit-down meal each Tuesday. You can also enjoy the College bar, a TV and reading room stocked with the latest newspapers and journals, free wifi and social events such as Sunday film nights.
All our residential buildings have shared kitchens – just bring along your own cooking utensils, saucepans, cutlery and crockery. Residents’ rooms are cleaned regularly by College staff and the on-site launderette has washers and dryers for your laundry.
A ‘country house library'
Described thus by a former resident: “It contains those books you always meant to read but never quite got around to.” A fair assessment, as our library aims to offer a recreational collection that appeals to all residents. Plus a few reference books that might help answer those niggling 2am questions.
The library holds around 4-5,000 books so it’s not hard to find what you want. Sections (see below) are arranged alphabetically by author, apart from Biography (by subject), Art (by author and artist) and Reference (by random!). We always welcome donations and suggestions for new books.
Library sections: Art, Biography, Literary Criticism, Crime Fiction, Drama, Film, History, Humorous Books, Music, Novels, Philosophy, Poetry, Reference, (PS) Social (or Human) Sciences, Natural Science, Science Fiction, Theology, Travel
The music room
In our very own music room you’ll find a Steinway grand piano and enjoy the chance to sample occasional concerts by the College musical society – the Bene’t Club – and others.
We hope this gives you a little taste of life at Leckhampton, but if you have any questions, do feel free to contact our Tutorial Office.
