191-193 Iffley Road
Do you consider yourself to be energy-aware? Would you like the chance to save money and reduce your Carbon Footprint? This may be the house for you!
We have recently purchased a 21 bedroom house at 191-193 Iffley Road, OX4 1EN. It is located about a ten minute cycle away from the main College site, and is surrounded by a Linacre community of our other houses nearby. The house is conveniently located for buses in to town and the rail station.
Linacre is one of the most environmentally-aware Colleges in Oxford. We are committed to reducing our carbon footprint, and to this end have taken some extra considerations for the new house. We are proud to market this house as the new prototype to help further Linacre’s Green commitments: this house will be fitted with energy-saving measures and be priced excluding utility bills.
We are committed to energy saving and innovation throughout our buildings and working practices, and our vision with 191-193 Iffley Road is to build awareness of how we use energy in our day to day lives and use this a learning opportunity to make improvements. We aim to reduce our Carbon Footprint and environmental impact by encouraging responsible energy consumption from residents of the house.
The rent will be charged excluding gas, water and electricity bills. Therefore, you will be charged monthly for these between the other occupants of your flat. This is a great opportunity to reduce your energy usage and work together with your fellow flatmates to keep your costs down.
21 single student study bedrooms are avaiable, in flats of between 2 and 5 occupants sharing one kitchen-diner and one bathroom per flat.
9 small rooms: £460 - £480
8 average rooms: £500
4 large rooms: £515.
In order to encourage awareness and ownership of your energy usage, the rent at 191-193 Iffley will exclude utility bills (gas, electricity and water). These bills will be measured monthly and shared between the occupants of the flat, and laundry charged per use through coin operated machines in the basement. At present the average monthly cost of utilities is £50 - we believe that with energy saving measures implemented by the College, and more considered use of the facilities by you, this could be significantly improved upon and have taken this in to account when setting the rents, allowing for a target of £30 for monthly bills. The rent includes internet, and cleaning of the communal areas.
The Licence Agreement will begin on Sunday 1st October 2017 and run through until 31st July 2018, with the possibility to extend further in to the summer. Unfortunately it will not be possible to move in sooner than 1st October this year.
