The college was founded to advance educational emancipation, and this remains at the heart of our ethos.

St Anne’s rewards outstanding academic work, gives generous grants for research and travel, and offers exceptional chances for study in Japan and internships in the UK and Europe.


St Anne’s is slightly north of the city centre – 5 minutes by bike – just by the University Parks, and close to the Science Area, Ashmolean Museum, Modern Languages and Classics Faculties and Mathematical and Oriental Institutes, as well as the new Radcliffe Observatory Quarter.

Accommodation and meals

St Anne’s has an excellent range of college accommodation which it offers to undergraduates for three years of their course. Nearly half the rooms are ensuite, and some rooms are specially designed for disabled access.

St Anne’s is renowned for the quality of its food. Most meals are relaxed, self-service affairs and are charged on a pay-as-you-go basis. We also have popular formal guest nights several times a term when students can bring friends. The college coffee shop is extremely popular with students and there are also self-catering kitchenettes close to all rooms.

Our large college library is open 24 hours a day and houses over 110,000 books. From 2017 onwards there will be over 100 library workspaces, four collaborative work rooms and a dedicated space for learning information skills.

Our lecture theatres are excellent venues for teaching, drama, film and music. There is a lively bar, common room, gym, dark room for photography and music practice rooms. The college shares a boathouse with St Hugh’s and Wadham and a nearby sports ground with St John’s.

Student societies

We have many events and activities throughout the year: regular music nights and film screenings, guest speakers from public life, an a cappella choir and an orchestra. Twice a term there are subject-family seminars, when members of college gather to listen to papers given by academics and students, followed by an informal dinner. The active Junior Common Room (JCR) organises everything from discussion groups to art classes. The college nurtures serious teams, notably in football and rowing, but there is also a wide range of sporting opportunities for those who wish to play for fun.
