The Queen's College

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.

Students at The Queen's College

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.

Queen’s is...

'…friendly, inspiring, beautiful.'

'…having a financial support system that means everyone is on a level playing field.'

'…never being bored! There is always something to get involved in, something new to try.'

'…close to both the centre and Cowley Road, giving students two different but equally fascinating perspectives of Oxford.'

'…the unique bond between the students.'
