Undergraduate Study



Christ’s has a fantastic location, right in the centre with shops, cafés and green spaces within minutes of the gate. The grounds are stunning, especially the Fellows’ Garden, and overall it’s just a really nice place to live.


From John Milton and Charles Darwin to Abioseh Davidson Nicol: Christ’s has long nurtured outstanding scholars, from all kinds of backgrounds, giving them the tools to ‘think differently’ and break new ground across the sciences and the arts.

We welcome students of all nationalities, and from every walk of life, who are passionate about their subject, committed to academic excellence and keen to explore new ideas in a positive, enabling environment. Our current students come from more than 60 countries, and all regions of Britain, and our active network of alumni includes leaders in politics, business, research and creative industries around the world.


The College’s architecture reflects both the diversity of our intake and the variety of our students’ interests: you may live in medieval splendour, restrained Victorian elegance, or the radical concrete Modernism of New Court.

  • Around half of our student rooms are en suite.
  • All undergraduates are accommodated within five minutes’ walk of the main College facilities.


Christ's College's facilities include:

  • a café/bar
  • a formal dining hall
  • informal self-service canteen
  • theatre
  • music practice rooms
  • a well-stocked library, open 24 hours a day
  • a modern gym and squash court
  • tennis and badminton courts
  • playing fields and a boathouse (a short bike ride from College)

Location and student life

Christ’s is centrally located, with instant access to the shops and cafés of the city centre. The College's extensive gardens offer an oasis of calm amidst the hubbub, and conceal a 17th century swimming pool and (occasionally) the College cats.

Our community is large enough to sustain a range of clubs, teams and societies, and small enough to ensure that it remains close-knit. The support we provide for our students starts from the moment they first contact us.
