  • Information

    Crescent Hall is one of our smaller halls located close to the popular Cowley area. It is 1.75 miles from the Headington Campus it provides self-catered non-en suite accommodation for just over 300 students in cluster flats of 6 or 7 bedrooms, sharing a kitchen/communal space and bathroom facilities.

    Most rooms are roughly 2.3 metres by 3.65 metres. They are furnished with a bed-base and mattress, mattress protector, desk and desk chair, reading lamp, wardrobe and curtains. Pinboards are provided for posters. All bedrooms have a sink.


    The hall is close to bus stops on BROOKESbus routes to the Wheatley Campus (U5X) and the Headington Campus and Marston Road site (U5). Alternatively you can cycle from this hall to your lectures. It’s close to the popular Cowley Road with its many bars, clubs and restaurants which are popular with Oxford Brookes students, and very close to other Cowley based residences: Paul Kent Hall, Slade Park and The Mews. These four halls house over 1000 students in total.
