Regent’s Park College is a relatively small community within the University of Oxford, with a total student body of under 200. This results in a more intimate feel than in many larger colleges, and close sense of community. As a result, Regent’s is known for its friendly atmosphere and students often get to know each other quickly and make good friends for life. We seek students who can demonstrate academic excellence and potential, and show a desire to be part of our college life in ways appropriate for them. College accommodation is available for students in their first and final years, and currently for some students in their second year also. Though technically Regent’s is a Hall rather than a College, the student experience is similar to that at any of the university’s other colleges and halls, and students can play a full role in all university activities – curricular and extra-curricular!
Regent’s punches above its weight in almost every respect, be it at the college level, in the many sports teams Regent’s has to offer, the charity events that have put Regent’s at the top of the University fundraising table, or the annual pantomime. Regent’s students have gone on to achieve great things at the university level, with students taking leading roles in the Oxford Union, University sports teams, the Investment Finance Society and the University Drama Society, and some students even gaining the prestigious Oxford Blue for sport.
The academic side of college is comparable to all other colleges. Tutoring is mainly in college but it is likely that some of your course will be taught at other colleges. The university centrally controls lectures, libraries and exams, and as Oxford students you will be able to make full use of these facilities. Oxford is an amazing university with so much to offer, and Regent’s is an ideal platform to take full advantage of all of its opportunities. We hope that this website tells you all you need to know about the exceptional community we have here in our beautiful corner of Oxford.
