Trinity is a medium-sized college which occupies a very spacious site with exceptionally beautiful gardens and buildings. It provides an ideal setting for academic success.

Relationships between students and academic staff are open and friendly and we welcome applications from all backgrounds. Tutorial and pastoral care are given very high priority. Our strong sense of community and excellent facilities are the ideal basis for hard work and academic achievement, and we are also keen to encourage students to develop as all-rounders.

Location


Trinity is very central: the Bodleian Library and other University buildings are a few yards from our front entrance on Broad Street, while the Science Area is a short walk from our back gate on Parks Road.

Accommodation and meals


Undergraduates can normally live in college-owned accommodation for the duration of their course, usually on the main college site for their first two years. Most then move to our self-catering accommodation in north Oxford; rents compare favourably with the private sector. All students can eat in college, where the food is reckoned to be among the best in Oxford.

Facilities


The library is open 24 hours a day and aims to provide copies of all books that undergraduates need for their tutorial work, with multiple copies of standard texts. The library budget is generous, and the librarian can respond on the same day to urgent requests for new books. All student accommodation has internet access and there are computer rooms with free printing.

On site are an undergraduate common room, a spacious social area with a bar, a squash court and small gym. Our sports ground is 1.5 km away, with provision for cricket, football, hockey, rugby and tennis. The boathouse is on the main stretch of the river. We are well equipped for music-making, with a sound-proofed practice room, three pianos and an organ. Regular services in chapel are open to all.


Student societies


There is a wide range of active groups. Men’s and women’s teams flourish in most sports and anyone can join in, regardless of ability. Our choir has released two successful CDs and gives recitals in Oxford and on tour. There is also a large chamber orchestra. The Trinity Players stage at least two productions a year, the summer one in the gardens being particularly popular. There is always plenty of scope for each student to make a mark and organise something new.

Students at University College come from all sorts of backgrounds, and from across the UK and the world. They have two things in common: intellectual ability and potential. They also have the capacity and enthusiasm for hard work, and enjoy intellectual challenges. Our college, commonly known as Univ, has a well-deserved reputation for academic excellence, openness, informality and strong welfare and student support systems. When we decide which applicants to admit, our overriding interest is in the student’s ability and desire to make a success of studying their chosen course. To make it easy for everyone who gets a place to come here, we offer some of the most generous college bursaries at Oxford on top of the financial support available from the University. And to make sure that everyone settles in well to their academic work and their life in Oxford, we offer a carefully balanced Welcome Week and a programme of academic support activities for all new students. We are unique among colleges in offering a free pre-sessional maths booster week for students in the relevant mathematical, physical and medical sciences.


Location


Univ is located right at the centre of the city, minutes away from the main libraries, lecture halls, laboratories, shops, restaurants, pubs, parks and the river. Our beautiful old buildings have been fully modernised for 21st-century needs, and despite our city centre surroundings we have several peaceful courtyards and gardens with grass and trees.

Accommodation and meals


Undergraduates are offered accommodation for all three years of their course. Students studying four-year courses can usually also be housed in their fourth year. Our student accommodation is high quality and affordable, while good-value high-quality food is served from our kitchen and buttery for three meals a day.

Facilities


Students love working in our college library, which contains about 50,000 volumes, with plenty of computers exclusively to support their study; there is a separate law library which is also well provided. Both libraries are open 24 hours a day in term. All student rooms are fully networked for computer use and also have telephones.

Student societies


Many students at Univ take advantage of starting university to try out new interests and activities in their spare time. The Junior Common Room (JCR) is the student union for the college, and organises a wide variety of social events as well as representing students’ needs. Lots of Univ students also get involved with our unique Ambassador Scheme, which works across the UK with schools, teachers and pupils to get them thinking about applying to university and to help them with their applications. There is a high level of participation in music through the music society and the chapel choir; typically there are about nine college concerts a year, while the drama society, the Univ Players, usually puts on three plays a year. There are a number of other societies, college teams in many sports and excellent sports facilities.
