St. Peter’s College
Our St Peter’s College study centre is situated on Pembroke Street, in the heart of the city’s university quarter. St Peter’s was built on the site of two mediaeval study halls, dating back to the 14th century, and forms a constituent college of Oxford University. St Peter’s has been a co-educational institution since 1979. The college has a varied set of buildings, many of them pre-dating the construction of the current college itself.
Although St Peter’s college was constructed in 1929, it has adapted existing buildings to provide facilities needed for college life, as well as building new ones to provide student accommodation. The impressive entrance building, Lynton House, was originally an 18th Century Georgian rectory, and now serves as the porter’s lodge and college library. The college chapel and dining hall both date from the 19th century, and the college has its own student-run college bar.
The college has sports teams competing in rowing, cricket, football, hockey, rugby, and pool; and shares with Exeter and Hertford Colleges a sports field which has two cricket pitches and pavilions, two rugby and football pitches, a hockey pitch, tennis courts and a squash court. The college boat club, St Peter’s College Boat Club, competes regularly and shares a boathouse with other Oxford colleges.
St Peter’s is known for its friendly and informal atmosphere, good humour, great relations between students and tutors, and its strong commitment to diversity and inclusion. Located in the heart of central Oxford, the College offers a wide range of subjects and welcomes students from all backgrounds and all parts of the world.
The college is situated in the centre of Oxford close to University departments and libraries, with easy access to both bus and railway stations. The famous Oxford Union, where everyone from internationally known celebrities to world leaders come to speak is literally around the corner, and Oxford’s shops, cafés, theatres and cinemas are all close to hand.
