Cost of living in Emmanuel College rooms (new system)
Rooms are classified into grades, according to their size. The larger the room, the higher the grade - and the higher the rent.
As of October 2012 the rent system changed. For details of the changes please see the following documents:
The main changes associated with rents were:
- catering fixed cost is now included in the weekly rent. It still varies with location from college in the way set out below. This will therefore vary the rents set by college in the document above.
- in order to ensure that students know their rent throughout their courses at Emmanuel, the rent payable on each grade will increase with interest (RPI) each year.
- students on new courses therefore have their "starting rent" set in the year they start their course. Students who were already here before then and are continuing courses simply see the rents from the 2011-2012 year increase with RPI. This means students in different years will pay different rents for the same grade of room. Students who arrive for the 2013-2014 year will see a different rent from students who arrived in the 2012-2013 year. The links above detail who college consider to be students on new courses. Since this document was published, the bursary has agreed that students who join Emmanuel with two year scholarships from Williams College will be classed as continuing their course when they move from their first year to their second year.
- at the same time as changing to this cohort system, college have decided to increase rents so that a grade 5 room is in line with the uiniversity average. This will guarantee that 80% of rooms at Emmanuel cost less than the university average. However, this means that in higher grades there is a large increase in rent. This change is being phased in so that no one year sees the full increase.
