Mansfield College

The smallest of all Oxford colleges, Mansfield College was established in 1886 to educate non-comformist ministers. Its commitment to openness and accessibility is evident in its golden, gothic stone architecture which faces outward and has no gate, thereby welcoming students in.

That spirit is still evident today in the College, which eschews unnecessary formality in favor of a supportive environment with high academic standards.

Visiting students at Mansfield study at an institution which enables them to excel academically in a range of subjects in arts, humanities and social sciences. The College offers entertainment, sports, music and drama venues and events, in addition to all the facilities and opportunities that Oxford has to offer.
