In the very centre of Oxford, tucked away in a cosy corner. In under 3 minutes you could get to: the Radcliffe Camera, Christ Church Meadow, the Examination Schools or the Covered Market.
We value individuality and embrace difference. We’re ambitious and supportive, and we want to see all our students reach their full potential (not just academically).
Described by our students as ‘the perfect size’, with around 600 students we’re slightly smaller than the average Oxford college.
We’re proud of our almost 700-year history, but are always looking for ways to make Oriel even better for future generations.
A close-knit community of people from a whole range of backgrounds. Students from all years live and socialise together, creating a family feel.
College accommodation is guaranteed for every year of your undergraduate course, and for all first year postgraduate students who are new to Oxford.
