The College Projects
Founded in 1517, Corpus Christi is a close-knit and vibrant Oxford college, committed to academic excellence
Its ancient buildings are some of the most beautiful in Oxford, and it enjoys an unrivalled position, overlooking gardens and meadows yet within five minutes walk of the city centre and the Bodleian Library.
The College is smaller than most, having 240 undergraduates and 115 graduate students. The staff includes 40 academic Fellows, all of them distinguished teachers and researchers in their fields. The remarkable sixteenth-century library, with its early furnishings and beautiful plaster-work, is fully equipped with modern networking facilities and contains 80,000 books and 80 runs of journals.
Up-to-date accommodation, including internet access in every room, is provided for all undergraduates and for most postgraduates. The College also possesses excellent facilities for sport, music and drama.
Corpus is proud of its reputation for sustaining academic excellence in a pleasant and tolerant atmosphere, and we aim to attract the most talented and committed students, irrespective of origin or background.
