Regent's ParkA student studying in the library of Regent's Park College.
Regent’s is famed for its friendly atmosphere and strong sense of community, and its undergraduates often excel in the sporting and cultural life of the University as well as in academic results. Tutors give meticulous care to the academic well-being of their students, providing them with a supportive environment as they move towards success in their final examinations. Students are members of many college committees including the Governing Body, and their views are actively sought in determining college policies.


Regent’s is very close to the city centre and the University libraries and amenities.

Accommodation and meals

First-year students are provided with spacious study bedrooms (with hand basins), and communal bathrooms and kitchens. Second-year students normally live out in privately rented accommodation and return as finalists to live in on-site flats.

Regent’s enjoys excellent food, and the catering committee (consisting of students and staff) provides regular feedback to the catering team. Breakfast, lunch and dinner are available in the college’s dining hall from Monday to Friday during term. Hot meals are served at lunch and dinner, and at lunch a well-stocked salad bar is also available.

On each Friday evening during term, dinner is known as Formal Hall: students and staff wear gowns and dress more formally, and students may bring their own wine to the tables for these meals. Formal Halls are a social high point of the college week, and are usually followed by Junior Common Room (JCR) social events.

Wi-Fi is available throughout the college.

The library at Regent’s, open 24/7, has core collections in all of the subjects taught in college, and its theology collection is one of the best in the University. There are computers and printing facilities in the library.

The JCR is equipped with leather sofas and a large TV with games console, and has one of the last student-run bars in Oxford. Each day at 11am and 4pm the JCR has ‘brew’ (tea and biscuits), which is a great way to get to know people.

Student societies

There are numerous student societies and sports teams based at Regent’s. Undergraduates also enjoy full use of University sports facilities, and many compete in University sports teams. Over the last few years Regent’s has been well represented in University drama, and students have also become leading figures in some of the University’s most prestigious societies. Regent’s Park College provides a great base for enjoying everything that undergraduate life has to offer.
