St Anne’s, well-known for its friendly and supportive academic environment, has over 300 graduates from many countries. This makes its Middle Common Room (MCR), to which all graduates belong, one of the largest and most international in the University.
The college is adjacent to the University Parks, the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter and the University Science Area, and is a short walk from the city centre.
St Anne’s is modern, open and committed to opportunity, and keen to reach out to students from around the world, involving all students in college life. St Anne’s offers a number of generous graduate scholarships, teaching scholarships, as well as travel and research grants.
The college has a dynamic research community supported by academics across the disciplines. Graduates are central to this lively, intellectually challenging culture. There are numerous events, academic and social, arranged by the MCR and SCR, which attract distinguished speakers and alumnae and bring together graduates and fellows. Regular subject family evenings and discussion group meetings give graduates a forum to present their work to fellows and other members of the college.
The Tutor for Graduates oversees the smooth running of graduate matters, working closely with the graduate student community and its committee of elected officers.
Accommodation and meals
The graduate accommodation centre, Robert Saunders House (RSH), is located in the vibrant Summertown area of Oxford which is north of the city centre and a short cycle ride away from St Anne’s College. The 80 washbasin bedrooms are arranged in clusters, each group having its own bathroom and kitchen which allows for self-catering. All study bedrooms are networked. Additional facilities at RSH include a common room with TV/DVD player, a study room with a networked computer and laser printer, and a laundry.
There are also 13 single standard bedrooms for graduates on the main college site in Eleanor Plumer House. On the ground floor of this house is the MCR common room, a kitchen and a computer room.
The college also rents a range of properties in the nearby Jericho area of Oxford.
There are no double rooms or family accommodation in the college's provision. St Anne’s does, however, have a nursery for children aged six months to five years.
Meals are provided in the college's dining hall in term time, from Monday of 0th week until Friday of 9th week. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are served on weekdays, and brunch is offered on Saturdays and Sundays.
Accommodation charges are separate to meal charges.
