College Life in Oxford

Experience the life of a University of Oxford student

Life in the colleges of the University of Oxford is unique. Behind ancient walls lie peaceful quadrangles that have supported learning and scholarship for at least eight centuries. A typical college consists of a dining hall, a chapel, a library, communal areas for students and accommodation for both students and lecturers.

The University of Oxford’s colleges typically have several impeccable gardens within them, and playing croquet on these lawns — or simply having a tutorial outdoors on a pleasant day — is a classic summer activity in Oxford.
