University of Oxford

Comprised of over 38 colleges across this beautiful city, Oxford is the second oldest university in the world. There is no concrete date of its foundation but there is evidence of teaching at the institution as far back as 1096. It is consistently ranked among the very best universities in the world, and currently sits at No. 1 in the Times Higher Education World University Rankings. Its alumni include 27 Nobel Prize winners.

Iconic buildings that are part of it include the Radcliffe Camera and the Sheldonian Theatre, with the 70-acre University Parks area providing a rolling expanse of green space in addition to the the many offered within the stunning college grounds. The city is dominated by university faculty and college buildings, giving it a historic, intimate and awe-inspiring feeling.

Life at the University of Oxford is truly magical. Aside from the stunning setting and the low student-to-teacher ratios giving an invaluable learning experience, there's also punting on the River Cherwell, the festivities of the lavish May balls and many student events and societies to discover across the huge range of colleges.

Our luxury Alice House accommodation is close to a lush woodland area and the beauty of the river, with all the amenities and entertainment of town on your doorstep. Most university buildings are within 10 minutes' cycle or 20 minutes' walk.
