About Regent’s

Regent’s is one of the 44 Colleges and Halls of the University of Oxford, and is located in the centre of the city. Founded in 1810, we are one of the smallest academic communities in the University, which enables us to provide exceptional pastoral care to all of our students. 

Our mission

Our mission is to create an exceptional community of learning and research made up of individuals from a broad range of backgrounds and life experiences. Everyone at Regent’s is focused on achieving excellence in undergraduate and graduate studies, ministerial formation and academic research.

Excellence in all that we do

We are proud of our unique place in Oxford’s collegiate system. Regent’s concentrates on teaching and research in the humanities and social sciences which means that we contribute heavily to Oxford’s worldwide reputation for excellence in these areas.

Principal's Welcome
Our small size means that we form a close-knit and informal community of staff and students, holding the best of Oxford traditions while interpreting them in a distinctive way. It is easy to be involved and engaged here at Regent’s – in academic conversation, student common room affairs, sports and cultural activities, and even college governance too. We greatly value the input of our students in every aspect of college life, and in partnership with them create an exceptional community focused on learning and research.
