About the college
Lady Margaret Hall (LMH) began with nine women and is now a vibrant academic community transforming the lives of hundreds of students.
We are diverse, open, intellectually curious and pioneering. We continue to break boundaries as the first Oxford college to establish a Foundation Year for under-represented students. Our students work with internationally distinguished scholars who are dedicated to tutorial teaching and welfare support.
LMH has an exceptionally beautiful site with gardens which run down to the river. Grants and scholarships are available to enable students to achieve their academic potential. We are committed to supporting disabled students and helping them achieve their potential.
Undergraduates are guaranteed a room on the college site for three years of their course. Our beautiful, well-stocked library is a great place to study; you can access and borrow books 24/7. We also have a theatre, music practice rooms, a gym, tennis courts, playing fields and punts.

'…being given the opportunity to fulfil my academic potential in a friendly and supportive environment.'
'…a very open-minded and vibrant college.'
'…my first home away from home; where I grew up, studied what I loved and made friends for life. Looking back I can’t think of a better place to have spent my undergraduate years!'
'...stunning gardens, especially in the summer – a haven from the hustle and bustle of touristy Oxford.'
'…the friendly, supportive atmosphere that the tutors and students create. The gardens are beautiful to spend time in throughout the year, and having such a big library on site is incredible.'

In order to ensure that all areas of the UK are fully supported by the University of Oxford, our colleges are working together to establish Oxford for UK, a series of regional outreach programmes offering tailored and local support to students of mixed ages, their parents and teachers.
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.
Lady Margaret Hall is part of Oxford for South West.
