Reuben College

A new graduate college at the University of Oxford, with a focus on 21st century interdisciplinary research.

Reuben College (formerly known as Parks College) was officially established on 7th May 2019 as a graduate society at the University of Oxford, similar to Kellogg College and St Cross College. Its name was officially changed on 30 June 2020, in recognition of a historic founding gift of £80 million from the Reuben Foundation.

The college is currently preparing to open for postgraduate applications in September 2020, for admission in the 2021-22 academic year. 

Known as Parks College in reference to its location on Parks Road, in the heart of the University Science Area, the college will share its building with the historic Radcliffe Science Library and a new Museums Collections Teaching and Research Centre. The building is currently undergoing an extensive programme of refurbishment, which will create exceptional new spaces and facilities for teaching, study, research, public engagement and social interactions.
