This gallery (put together by students) shows most of Clare’s undergraduate accommodation. All first years live in Memorial Court, and most second, third and fourth years live in Colony.
First year students rank their accommodation choices, and generally speaking there’s a good chance of getting either your first or second choice. From your second year onwards, you go into the ballot (you can do this alone or with friends). Everyone in the ballot is placed in a random order, and then picks their room in that order. Then, in your third year the order is reversed, so if you get less of a choice in your second year, you’ll have more in third year.
