Corpus Christi College

Boasting a strong sense of community and a friendly atmosphere, Corpus Christi is one of Oxford’s older and smaller colleges. It prides itself on a strong tradition of openness, tolerance and fairness. Corpus Christi combines history with modernity; the college’s magnificent 16th-century library is still used by students today. With over 60,000 books, 24-hour opening, computerised catalogues and numerous PCs, it is both a convenient and beautiful place to work.

Students at Corpus Christi College

Students benefit from access to a sports field and boathouse, TV rooms, the Junior Common Room, and the beer cellar. There is also an auditorium suitable for concerts, productions, parties and lectures. Among the most active of the many clubs are the dramatic society – the Owlets – and the choir. Corpus has an impressive social calendar with a ball every other spring and a fair each June, which features the college’s famous tortoise race!

In order to ensure that all areas of the UK are fully supported by the University of Oxford, our colleges are working together to establish Oxford for UK, a series of regional outreach programmes offering tailored and local support to students of mixed ages, their parents and teachers.

In addition, the colleges will continue to maintain their existing link regions.

Getting in touch with the college linked to your region has no influence on your chances of being accepted to this or any other particular college. You are also very welcome to get in touch with any other college for advice about applying or studying here.
