Hertford College

Hertford is known for its friendly atmosphere, welcoming students wherever they come from: you don’t have to be any particular type to fit in. We value our informal, progressive climate, which we believe fosters good, positive working relationships between tutors and students.

Location

Hertford CollegeHertford Bridge, popularly known as the Bridge of Sighs.
Hertford is in quiet Catte Street, opposite the Bodleian Library and right in the city centre.

Accommodation and meals

All first years live on the main site in Catte Street surrounded by some of the most beautiful buildings in Oxford. Students in other years live in Warnock or Abingdon House (both purpose built and close to the river and Christ Church Meadow), or in north Oxford, all about ten minutes’ walk away. We offer you a room for the full duration of your course and all student rooms have internet connections, telephones and small shared kitchens. There is cafeteria service in college and at Warnock House (for certain meals) and there are also opportunities for formal dining. You are charged only for the meals you take; there is no standing charge.

Facilities

The college library is open 24 hours a day. Its working stock is on open shelves and covers all degree subjects taken in college. There is no limit on the number of books students can borrow and requests for new books are welcome. All desks have internet connections and the library has its own computer room.

The well-equipped Junior Common Room (JCR) has two computer rooms and there are additional computing facilities at Warnock and Abingdon House.

The college has a gym, a music room and an attractive and comfortable bar. Off site we have sports grounds, tennis and squash courts and a superb boathouse.

Student societies

Hertford’s students are diverse and passionate about their various interests, so we have societies for everything from business and economics to ultimate frisbee. We are strong in music-making of all kinds, with an orchestra, choir and jazz band. Our boathouse provides excellent facilities for novice and experienced oarsmen and -women, and we compete successfully in the full range of major sports. Many subjects also have their own societies that meet to hear specialist speakers or just to enjoy one another’s company.
