College Photos

A selection of views from around the College. Some of the photos have been taken by Aida Miralaei, a PhD student at the College, and we are very grateful to her for allowing us to use them.


Please contact the Admissions Officer in advance, if you require any specific arrangements to be made during your visit to the College, e.g., room accessibility.


We would advise all prospective candidates to familiarise themselves with the full details of the courses, which are available on the Departmental and Faculty pages, as these may provide helpful background reading for discussions with Directors of Studies and Admissions Tutors.

PLEASE NOTE: The College is currently closed to visitors.

The College is usually open daily from 9am to 6pm for members of the public to wander through the grounds. You do not need to book to have a general look around, but we advise you to email in advance and check that the College is definitely open. During your visit, you can call into the Porters’ Lodge (main entrance, St Andrew’s Street) to pick up copies of the College and Alternative prospectuses.
