The student body at Queen’s is diverse, dynamic and inclusive, with the college hardship fund providing generous support in cases of financial need. Both students and tutors are passionate about their chosen fields and the college also has a strong tradition in music, sport and drama. The popular JCR (Junior Common Room) tea is held daily in the common room and is evidence of the strength of the undergraduate community, where friendships commonly form across both year and subject groups.
As a place to live, study and socialise, Queen’s is a fabulous mix of old and new. The 17th-century Upper Library is one of the finest reading rooms in Oxford while the New Library is a fantastic contemporary space for study. Musical performances, film screenings and visiting speakers are hosted in the state-of-the-art auditorium, only a short walk from the striking classical architecture of the Front Quad.
