St Hilda’s has one of the most beautiful settings in Oxford. The buildings and gardens stretch along the banks of the River Cherwell which flows under nearby Magdalen Bridge. From the lawns students can enjoy one of the best views of Oxford’s dreaming spires.
The College is a five-minute walk from Oxford’s busy High Street and the University Examination Schools, with the Bodleian Library, museums, laboratories and subject departments just a short way beyond this. St Hilda’s is also two minutes from Cowley Road, famed for its vibrant mix of independent shops, world cuisine restaurants, cafés and bars.
St Hilda’s College is also the closest Oxford college to the main Oxford University Sports complex on Iffley Road. Facilities include a power-lifting gym, rowing tank, Olympic-sized swimming pool, and running track. The sports complex offers our students a fantastic discounted annual membership for just £15.
St Hilda’s students benefit from a world-class teaching and learning experience within a tranquil riverside setting, which offers respite from the tourist magnet of Oxford’s city centre, whilst being within walking distance of lectures and classes. At St Hilda’s College, students really do get the best of all worlds.
