The Somerville community is ambitious, hard-working and open-minded. We are an informal College with great food, plenty of facilities, and proximity to many major departments, as well as to Jericho and central Oxford. 85% of undergrads live in College but everyone gets to enjoy the gardens, food, welfare support, music, sport and much more besides.
From 2019, we offer all undergraduates a room in our central site for every year of their course.
