Mansfield College is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford. Our membership comprises approximately 50 academic staff, 220 undergraduates, 50 graduates and 35 visiting students. This small size engenders friendly and close relationships not only amongst undergraduates, but also between Junior (undergraduate), Middle (graduate) and Senior (tutors) Common Rooms.
To find out about our academic staff and their research and teaching interests, please visit Fellows and Academics. You can find out about the subjects you can study here as an undergraduate on our Subjects page.
Mansfield occupies one of the most attractive sites in Oxford, close to all the libraries and shops, yet in a quiet position near to the University parks and River Cherwell. The late nineteenth-century buildings, which house the College's main public rooms, are regarded as amongst the finest work of the important Victorian architect, Basil Champneys.
Our roots are in the Nonconformist tradition, and since the 1880s Mansfield has prided itself on offering previously excluded constituencies access to an Oxford education. We are renowned for successfully combining the best of Oxford with our own unique and innovative personality. We provide a progressive, informal environment, in which tutors and students work together to achieve academic excellence and sustain a supportive and lively community.
