Keble College

Keble College was originally established to extend access to Oxford University, and it remains true to that founding vision. We aim to foster the highest academic achievement for all our students, from all backgrounds and every corner of the globe. We are a large college with our undergraduate facilities on one main site. Our size allows us to have at least two fellows (tutors) in all our main subjects, which means our students can always get the academic support they need.

Students at Keble College

The college’s striking Victorian architecture houses some of the best student accommodation in Oxford, while our beautiful dining hall (the longest in Oxford) allows the college to maintain the tradition of dining together on both informal and formal occasions.

Our students pride themselves on being welcoming and friendly. You won’t find a Keble ‘type’, but you will find a supportive environment made up of students from a range of different backgrounds.

Keble is...

…an extremely warm and welcoming community. I never feel out of place as an international student and have found my second home here.

…one of the most welcoming environments in Oxford and a truly wonderful place to live!

…the place I've felt most 'myself' ever. It's given me countless opportunities to broaden my intellectual horizons as well as get involved in plenty of extra-curricular activities. I can't imagine being happier elsewhere.

…one of the friendliest places you can be in Oxford, while at the same time being so big and lively! Students and staff alike are always happy to help with anything, making it such a supportive academic and social environment.

In order to make it easier for you to establish a first point of contact with our University, every Oxford college is ‘linked’ to a particular region of the UK. The ‘link’ college will know their region particularly well and already have contact with schools and students in the area.

Getting in touch with the college linked to your region has no influence on your chances of being accepted to this or any other particular college. You are also very welcome to get in touch with any other college for advice about applying or studying here.
