About the college
It is the essence of a college that people talk across boundaries in ways that they may not otherwise do: across cohorts and generations, across subjects and disciplines, across teams and specialisms. Queen's is proud to have a warm and welcoming community that fosters a spirit of creative exploration and collaboration.
As a place to live, study and socialise, Queen’s is a beautiful mix of old and new. Students make good use of the spacious library, which is open 24/7 and includes the stunning 17th-century Upper Library and the state-of-the-art New Library.
The College also has a strong tradition in music, sport and drama, so when students are looking for a break from work there are plenty of extra-curricular and social activities on offer. During the daily JCR (Junior Common Room) tea, friendships from across both year and subject groups are formed, as students come together to enjoy tea, cake, and a catch-up.
Our students are passionate about their chosen subjects and are extremely well-supported in their academic pursuits by both their tutors and their peers, as well as through the many funding opportunities the College can offer.

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.
