Staying at Homerton

Alumni of Homerton College are able to book accommodation at the College at a special alumni rate.  In order to book a room through the online booking system, please first email in order to obtain a booking code, which will enable to you book rooms at the discounted alumni rate.

Outside of term time, rooms are usually available for alumni.  During term, we cannot guarantee a room will be available, as the needs of current students must take priority.  However, if you enquire 10 days to a week in advance regarding rooms during term time, we should be able to advise you on availability.  Unfortunately, during term time, we cannot accept bookings further in advance.

Visiting the grounds

Alumni are always welcome to visit the grounds of Homerton College. If you would like to have a picnic in the grounds or to take engagement photographs, please contact the Development Office in advance so they can help you organise your visit. Please email three working days in advance of your visit.
