Why St Anne's?

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.

Our Fellows, Lecturers and Researchers have excellent reputations in their areas of research, giving our students the opportunity to learn from experts in their chosen subjects. The diversity of subjects studied at St Anne’s creates an interesting interdisciplinary culture within the College, encouraging collaboration and ensuring that our students encounter new ideas outside the disciplines they study.

Our dedicated Library and Academic Centre (which opened in 2017) and our Old Library house over 110,000 volumes, the largest working collection of any Oxford college. Our Libraries provide state of the art IT facilities and rooms for group working, as well as work spaces for focused study in an atmosphere of quiet concentration. 

St Anne’s has an excellent range of College accommodation and offers on-site accommodation for three years, including to all first-year students. All rooms are single occupancy, many are en-suite and accessible rooms are available.

Our students are supported by our fantastic and dedicated Welfare team, including our Dean for Welfare, Assistant Deans (postgraduates who live on site), College Nurse and Peer Supporters. Students are also supported by the Senior Tutor and the Academic Office team, who look after students during their time here.

Our aim at St Anne’s is to prepare all our students for life through the range and intensity of the career development opportunities we provide. We organise many career events throughout the academic year, and work with a range of companies to offer internship opportunities exclusively to St Anne’s students.

Undergraduates at St Anne’s belong to the Junior Common Room (JCR), who organise a variety of social events for students throughout the year, including activities to help new students settle in when they start here at St Anne’s.In addition to the wide range of University-level societies, we have many College societies and teams for St Anne’s students to join.

“I have absolutely loved my time at St Anne’s so far. There are so many opportunities here, academically and socially. The tutorial system gives you great individual attention and lets you tailor the course to your interests. The college system is great for giving you a close-knit group of friends, in combination with a large university, with endless opportunities and societies, whenever you want it.” Will Carter (Modern Languages)
