Oxford colleges


Oxford University is made up of different colleges.

Colleges are academic communities. They are where students usually have their tutorials. Each one has its own dining hall, bar, common room and library, and lots of college groups and societies.

All undergraduate students at Oxford become members of a college. Depending on your course choice, the number of colleges and halls available to you may vary (see pp 126-127 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note]).

You will also be a member of the wider University. To find out how colleges and departments fit together, see p 5 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note].

Wherever you go, your course will be the same and you will be able to socialise with whomever you choose.

Everyone lives in college accommodation in their first year. After that, you may decide to live with friends from your own or other colleges in rented accommodation (see pp 164-165 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note]). Even so, you will still spend lots of time in your own college, whether to attend tutorials, visit friends, have a meal, watch a film, spend time in the library or just do your washing.

All colleges offer a close and supportive environment and foster the academic development and welfare of every one of their students all the time they are here.

Student statement


The best thing about Oxford is the colleges. The colleges are the heart and soul of the place. They ensure that every new student has a ready-made community and tutors who see them regularly and really care about them and their academic development. Idonea, Oxford graduate

What is a college tutor?


College tutors are academics who teach and research at the University. They interview candidates and decide who should study at their college. They will oversee your academic progress, and may teach you throughout your time here. Tutors are also members of their subject departments and you may find yourself attending lectures and classes given by your own college tutors.

What is a ‘Junior Common Room’?


‘JCR’ means two different things. Firstly, it is a room in college, where you can take time out to meet friends, watch television, or play pool. Secondly, it refers to all the undergraduate students at the college, who elect a ‘JCR committee’ to organise events and campaign on behalf of students. The JCR committee members work with the Oxford University Student Union (see p 169 [Transcriber's Note: page number of the printed edition. End of note]).

What is a ‘Permanent Private Hall’?


These are very similar to colleges except that they tend to be smaller, and were founded by particular Christian denominations. They offer fewer courses than most colleges. Students at PPHs are members of the University just like students at colleges, and have access to exactly the same University facilities and activities.

Student statements


It’s a nice feeling being able to go the JCR whenever you like and finding there’s always someone there. It’s such a social environment, and the best way to get to know people – they become your family. Jamie, 2nd year

You walk around college and say ‘hi’ to at least five different people that you know. It’s like home away from home. Claire, 4th year
