At St Hilda’s College you’ll have excellent, supportive tutors who select on the basis of academic merit. Your tutors will be serious scholars who enjoy teaching in Oxford’s tutorial system. You’ll be part of a friendly and diverse community, with people from all educational and social backgrounds, both British and international. You’ll be eligible for many college awards for academic work, travel, sport and other activities. After your time at St Hilda’s, you can keep in touch through the Association of Senior Members and its professional networks which help students at the start of their careers. Founded in 1893 for women, St Hilda’s continues to promote its original values of excellence and equality as a mixed college, admitting roughly equal numbers of women and men. Come and see this beautiful and welcoming college for yourself!


Location


At St Hilda’s you’ll relax in the tranquil beauty of the college’s riverside site - and you’ll have easy access to the centre of town, the University Sports Complex (check out the map at the back of this Prospectus), and the lively culture of East Oxford.

Accommodation and meals


As a first- or final-year student, you will have a room in college. In your second year, you have the opportunity to live in your ‘own’ rented house near St Hilda’s, so you’ll still be close to college. Many final-year students have rooms with a shower and WC, and all college rooms have internet connections. There is accommodation for disabled students. Food in college is highly rated, and we cater for special diets. You also have the option of self-catering in one of the many student kitchens in college. Students pay about £155 per term for meals, or £120 if they live out. A standard college room costs about £1,197 for a 9-week term.

Facilities


In the college library you’ll find an extensive collection of both paper and electronic resources to support your undergraduate studies. You can use your own computer, or work in a separate computer room. The large, well-equipped electronic resources room gives access to library catalogues, databases, and the internet. And you’ll always have help on hand, as the library is staffed at all times.

You’ll be able to enjoy performances (yours and other people’s) of every kind of music in the Jacqueline du Pré Music Building, which has superb acoustics, plus 5 practice rooms and a recording studio that students may use. The Director of College Music helps to coordinate student concerts, and you’ll get fantastic rates for professional concerts.

St Hilda’s is one of the few undergraduate colleges right on the river. You can use college punts in the summer months - they are moored a few steps from the Porter’s Lodge.

Just around the corner on the Iffley Road is the University Sports Complex with its gym and swimming pool. Through the college, you can get subsidised membership for both.

The brand new JCR gives you a hub in college - with a TV room, pool table, bar, and buttery. Your JCR Committee organises regular social events such as bops (fancy dress parties), welfare teas, and formal halls for you to enjoy with your friends.

Student societies


Your options include: music; drama; the college student newspaper; and a wide range of sport (for example, rowing, netball, hockey, rugby, yoga, ultimate Frisbee). At the JCR Arts Festival you can show your own work (sculpture, painting, photography) and put on plays and concerts. You can also take part in the JCR St Hilda’s Festival celebrating our tradition of excellence and equality. And you can always start your own society!

Founded in 1886, St Hugh’s is now one of the largest colleges in Oxford. The college was established to offer an Oxford education to women, and it retains a strong sense of its radical tradition and of the importance of opening Oxford up to all who would do well here. St Hugh’s now accepts men and women and welcomes students from every country and any kind of background.

St Hugh’s has a beautiful setting just to the north of the city centre, with Edwardian buildings and some of the largest college grounds. The college is known as the ‘island site’ because of its tranquil gardens, and it is a restful place to live and work.

The college awards Scholarships or Exhibitions (grants) to undergraduates on the basis of their performance in University examinations, or for other excellent work. All members of college are entitled to apply for grants to help with vacation travel connected to their course of study, and there are also funds available for those who encounter unforeseen financial hardship.


Location


St Hugh’s College is about ten minutes’ walk from the city centre; within easy reach, on foot or by bicycle, of all University departments and libraries.

Accommodation and meals


Accommodation is available on the main college site for all undergraduates right through their course. Nearly half of rooms have their own bathroom. All rooms have free internet connection. Shared kitchens are available as an alternative to eating in the main hall. Meals in hall are paid for using a cashless card system.

Facilities


St Hugh’s has one of the largest and best-stocked of all college libraries, housed in a beautiful art deco building, with 100,000 volumes and 24-hour access. There are dedicated computer rooms, an impressively equipped gym, a student-run bar, and the college’s chapel is open to all college members, regardless of belief.

Student societies


There are academic societies in many subject areas, and the college has a very active musical and artistic life, including a chapel choir, and annual prizes for musical performance and creative writing. Sport within college is very popular: as well as having a brand new gym on site, the gardens are used for frisbee and croquet, and St Hugh’s has a share in a boathouse, squash courts and a sports ground. The college hosts a ball every two years in its beautiful gardens.
