Kellogg College

Kellogg College is a lively and diverse academic community welcoming graduate students and researchers from around the world. Members of the college can be found working across all four of the University’s academic divisions and the Department for Continuing Education. The college community of over 900 students is a vibrant blend of part-time and full-time graduates and students come from around 90 countries, making Kellogg College a truly global academic community. 

Kellogg College transforms lives by creating opportunities for lifelong and flexible learning, extending access to the University of Oxford by reaching out beyond the traditional full-time, residential student community. Students at the college benefit from studying and researching alongside their peers, who are actively engaged in careers across a range of industries whilst studying for a post-graduate degree at Oxford. This mixed community at Kellogg is what makes the college a unique and inspiring atmosphere in which to work and study.

Library and IT services

Covering a broad range of subjects there are particular strengths in historical architecture, archaeology, landscape and garden history, interior design and finishing, good coverage of local and medieval history, and of aspects of English and French literature.

The college library is one of the newest libraries at Oxford, and is undergoing change – the collection is continually being expanded and it is also being catalogued, with books added almost daily to the University’s integrated library catalogue (SOLO) to facilitate finding items.

Members of Kellogg College have 24-hour access to the collection, which is reference only,

The college site has full WiFi coverage, allowing easy access to the University network. Study-bedrooms on the college site are equipped for both wired and wireless access. There are several network points and desktop workstations around the college for students to use while studying and some hot-desking spaces. The college operates a central printing service allowing printing from anywhere on site. A scanner/copier facility is also available.

Sport, music and college facilities

The college’s sports committee provides support for both established college sports and new initiatives such as croquet and squash. Kellogg’s student community provides a number of members for prestigious University ‘Blues’ teams such as rugby and rowing. The college has an affiliation with the Christ Church Boat Club to offer opportunities to row at all levels and fields a football team in the University’s MCR league.

Other activities at Kellogg include drama, film screenings, yoga, concerts, wine tastings, dances and trips to places of interest. The college hosts a popular Burns Night ceilidh each January and the MCR runs a ball in the summer.

The college is home to a number of research centres, each of which participates in the college’s series of open seminars. Speakers include college fellows, visiting experts from around the world, and students. The college also hosts a colloquium, offering students the opportunity to share their work and receive feedback.

Events are run throughout the year. As the collegiate home for many part-time students with work and family commitments, the college is particularly sensitive to the need for flexibility in scheduling, as a result some events are held at weekends and during vacation periods.

With a large number of non-resident members, the college makes a considerable effort to keep students informed about events and developments at college so that they can keep in touch with the community wherever they are in the world. The termly calendar of events is published well in advance to help with planning and the college is active on social media.

Facilities for students with disabilities

The college’s main buildings are wheelchair accessible. Specially-adapted student accommodation is available on the college site.

Once a student has been accepted, the college will endeavour to meet specific requirements.

The MCR is involved with welcoming new and returning students each term, runs a programme of social and sporting events each term, and is engaged through student representatives in the governance of the college.
