ST ANTONY'S COLLEGE
Live, eat and play in one of the famous Colleges of the University of Oxford.
Oxford University is a collegiate university. That means that as well as a central university body, and academic departments, there are independent colleges which are powerful institutions in their own right. Oxford's permanent academics all have a college affiliation. They have an office and dining rights in their college, and are members of the Governing Body. Undergraduate and graduate students also belong to a college. They live, eat and work there, and often demonstrate fierce loyalty to their college, both during and after their time in Oxford. Colleges compete in sports and other activities, particularly rowing which is an Oxford obsession.
St Antony's is a graduate college, housing only graduate students who are studying for a Masters or DPhil degree, as well as the academics. They specialise in Middle Eastern studies, but accommodate many university subjects. The college site is a 15 minute walk north of the busy city centre at the southern edge of leafy, quiet, north Oxford, the most affluent part of the city with its large Victorian buildings mixed in stunning modern architecture. They have some fantastic new en-suite accommodation, and some converted Victorian houses. LIGC students get a single study bedroom in one of other of these accommodation blocks. Students are allocated their rooms in a ballot.
The food at St Antony's is some of the best in the university. Breakfast is huge and delicious, so everyone tends to get up on time! Lunches are in the University Science Area, nearby Linacre College, or students go and sample the fare at the amazing Oxford Street Food Market. Students have dinner in college on Sunday when they arrive; we go out for pizza together on the Monday evening in a lovely local pizzeria, and on Friday there is usually a BBQ in College. On other evenings students are free to explore Oxford - there are many lovely places to eat. During the day we make our own drinks at the ECI, and have snacks to keep us going between meals!
