The generous support of alumni and friends has been fundamental to strengthening our foundations while allowing the College to continue to offer a unique dissenting voice at the heart of Oxford - helping to grow our endowment while establishing postgraduate scholarships and pioneering academic centres.
Building on the achievements of recent years, we now aim to make the student experience at Regent's the best it can possibly be. Every gift as we work towards this goal makes a huge difference to us. We are deeply grateful for any level of support you can give.
Regents Gives 2023: Celebrating a successful second Giving Day!
Over 36 hours on 23-24 May 2023, our community has come together to celebrate and support all that makes Regent’s and its students exceptional. Building on the fantastic achievements of our first ever Giving Day in 2021, this year we raised £60,297 (and counting!) from 175 generous donors! A huge thank you to each and every one of you who got involved – we do so appreciate your commitment to Regent’s.
Your support means the College can achieve its aims in these areas:
The student experience
At Regent’s, we aim to give each of our students the best opportunity to excel in their chosen field. To help us to do this effectively, we are seeking support towards two areas:
Over recent years Regent’s has welcomed more postgraduate students than ever before, yet many talented potential students lack the funds needed to embark on graduate studies. We are thrilled that support from alumni and friends has allowed us to launch the The Pamela Sue Anderson Studentship for the Encouragement of the Place of Women in Philosophy and The Greyfriars Scholarship, which provide vital financial support for exceptional postgraduate students at the College. These scholarships make a difference not only to the students themselves, but also to the graduate community within Regent’s.
Regent’s is now eligible to benefit from generous matched funding from the University aimed at establishing new graduate scholarships. These scholarships will fully fund students’ fees and living costs, allowing them to flourish and focus on their studies. Your support will help us meet our target in order to release the funding and welcome more students to our lively MCR community.
The Student Support Fund, launched in the last three years, was set up thanks to alumni and continues to rely entirely on support from alumni and friends. Hugely valuable to students, it means we can respond with flexibility to unexpected needs or hardship without constraints or restrictions. By contributing towards its growth, you will allow us to help more students in more ways.
The living and learning environment
Regent’s has been developing and improving its site since we arrived here in 1927 and we continue to strive to provide the best quality of accommodation and facilities for our students. Donations towards the development and maintenance of the site and its facilities are extremely helpful so that we can focus on the most pressing needs. For those who wish to leave a lasting legacy, in recognition of generosity there is considerable scope to remember your name or that of a loved one in rooms throughout the College.

Outreach and Access
As a small college with a reputation for providing a strong sense of belonging within a diverse and inclusive community, Regent’s has an important role to play dispelling myths about Oxford for young people. With support we can increase our links specifically with schools with a very limited history of students attending Oxbridge, work with young people to inspire and instil confidence to apply.
Teaching and research
The College has award-winning tutors encouraging their students to aim high and providing excellent academic support, as well as researchers bearing witness to the value of the Humanities in higher education and society, exploring the essence of a fully liveable and a civilised world. It is absolutely vital that we continue to attract and retain the most outstanding academics and safeguard the tutorial system from which students draw such benefit.
