St Anne’s is a down-to-earth, friendly and independent-minded college. It is modern in its outlook and architecture and open to the world, informal and yet academically demanding. We are proud to be a diverse and inclusive community and we take student welfare extremely seriously. We stand, above all, for the following principles: opportunity, collaboration and being forward looking and far reaching.
St Anne’s is renowned for the quality of its food. Most meals are relaxed affairs but there are also formal guest nights. All undergraduate accommodation includes communal kitchens for self-catering and we have a popular on-site coffee shop. Our large library is open 24 hours a day and houses over 110,000 books. We hold many events throughout the year including regular music nights, film screenings and guest lectures. We have an a cappella choir, an orchestra and a wide range of sports teams. The Junior Common Room organises everything from discussion groups to art classes.

St Anne’s is...
…a wonderfully welcoming community of students and staff from all kinds of backgrounds, made all the better by our college tortoise, Tortellini!
…about having the excellent support network when things don’t go according to plan – both academically and non-academically.
…not pretentious or intimidating – you get to enjoy all the architecture around Oxford but live in a place which is informal and welcoming – the best of both worlds.
...about the diversity, the chat and the vibrant atmosphere, as well as the feeling that you’re part of a team.
…about collaboration rather than competition, which is really encouraging.
