St Anne's College

St Anne’s is a down-to-earth, friendly and independent-minded college that takes people for what they are. It is modern in its outlook and architecture and open to the world, informal and yet academically demanding. We are proud to be an international and diverse 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.

Students at St Anne's College

St Anne’s is renowned for the quality of its food. Most meals are relaxed affairs but there are also formal guest nights. We have self-catering kitchenettes and a popular 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!

…the excellent support network that there has been when things don’t go according to plan – both academically and nonacademically.

…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.

...the diversity, the chat and the vibrant atmosphere, as well as the feeling that you’re part of a team.
