About the college
Christ Church is home to a really welcoming and vibrant community of students and staff living in one of the most beautiful colleges in Oxford.
Students at Christ Church can live in college accommodation throughout their degree and are lucky enough to eat subsidised meals in the famous (Harry Potter) dining hall. Most students live on the main site, just a stone’s throw away from Christ Church Meadow, perfect for a walk or picnic with friends (and maybe Layla, our Welfare Coordinator's dog).
Christ Church offers fantastic welfare support for students, with trained student Peer Supporters and a College Counsellor. As well as the Junior Common Room (JCR), we have a TV room and college bar (the Undercroft or ‘Undie’).
There is a vibrant music scene at Christ Church and the JCR organise Arts Week once a year. For those interested in sport, Christ Church students have free access to the University gym and swimming pool and there are loads of college teams which are keen to recruit those of all abilities.

Christ Church is...
'…a sense of community. There's enough of us for there to be variety and a lot of people to meet, but at the same time I really feel at home here.'
'…having supportive tutors who challenged me when I understood the material, but also helped me when things didn’t make sense.'
'…a big college, so you keep meeting new people well into the 2nd and maybe even 3rd year.'
'…meeting such a diverse range of people that any worries about stereotypes are soon dispelled.'
