38 Colleges of Oxford University

Oxford University consists of 38 Colleges and 6 Private Halls, all independent from and Oxford University. Oxford University has what is known as a collegiate system, which is distinctive from most other universities.

University of Oxford

The 44 Colleges and Halls have their own rules, traditions and statutes, but at the same time they are linked to the University in a federal system. Anyone studying here must be a member of a college, even though their studies will not necessarily take place in that particular college. As a student, you study according to your subject or faculty (e.g. engineering, medicine, history).

The University-College-faculty arrangement is a complex relationship, and toget a better flavour of how it works, Oxford City Visitors Guide recommends that you join an Oxford Tour. Many colleges have closed doors, and it can be difficult for tourists to get behind the scenes. Joining a walking tour is the easiest way to do some college sightseeing and learn about the great history of Oxford University.
