Alcuin College Student Association

  • Groupsicon


Opened in 1967, Alcuin is one of the oldest Colleges at the University of York, acting as a home for a social and diverse community of over 1’500 students both on and off campus. The college not only provides some of the best accommodation at York (leading us to be branded the ‘ensuite elite’), but also one of the strongest senses of community spirit and college pride. Alcuin is well known for its environmental ethos and academic prowess, as well as housing two of the nicest cafes on campus. Free Hangover Lunches, bi-weekly Live Lounges, and Alcuin’s Winter Ball are among some of Alcuin’s proud traditions that help to foster the high level of student engagement we are proud to see year after year.
