Harris Manchester College

Harris Manchester is the only Oxford college which is dedicated solely to mature students (21+ with no upper age limit). It has a warm and friendly atmosphere. There is a great deal of support available and each student is treated as an individual. Our diversity of age, nationality and background makes the college a very interesting and vibrant society. The college has a number of scholarships for second undergraduate degrees.

Students at Harris Manchester

College accommodation is all on the main site and students can generally live in for at least the first and final years of their course. Our excellent librarians manage some 70,000 volumes, and the library itself is open to students 24 hours a day during term time. Each student also has a small book grant to spend as they wish. The student community is socially active, with a lively variety of sporting and cultural events.
