About the college
St Hilda’s is situated a five minute walk from Oxford city centre; with the University Sports Centre and the buzzing Cowley Road, full of cafes, music venues, bars and global cuisines, on its doorstep.
All first years live on the main college site and can choose to live in college accommodation for the entirety of their degree. Shared kitchen facilities are available, and our beautiful dining hall overlooking the River Cherwell provides ample choice and excellent food.
Students enjoy our outstanding facilities, whether it’s our concert venue and recording studio, our multi-faith space, or our on-site gym.
The college is a caring academic community, with passionate and supportive tutors, a dedicated welfare team, and one of the most extensive college library collections in Oxford.
We also offer a generous range of bursaries and financial awards for academic work, travel, sport, and other activities to help you make the most of your time here. St Hilda’s provides everything you need to succeed, in one of the most friendly and inclusive environments in Oxford.
