4 students sit on the lawn on a sunny day chatting casually

Somerville students will tell you that the moment they walked through the door, they felt at home.

There are lots of reasons why: it’s a beautiful place, and one with an extraordinary history. But mostly, it’s because Somerville is such a strong community. We offer places in almost every subject you can study at Oxford, and we’re proud to be one of the most diverse colleges in Oxford, with students from every kind of background.

There are all kinds of things to get involved with outside of your studies here. Our students run sports teams, orchestras, baking societies and more, supported by our excellent facilities and location.
