How your Gift makes a Difference
Every gift to Mansfield has a significant positive impact on our student community.
Mansfield is smaller and younger than most Oxford Colleges and our limited resources put pressure on the facilities here. Despite this, we are very proud of what Mansfield has been able to achieve over the last few years, thanks in the most part to the loyal support of our alumni and friends.
“I would never have come to Oxford were it not for Mansfield. I first visited the university on an access open day, and saw a number of colleges. I found them all really intimidating and I wasn’t going to apply – most of my friends weren’t at sixth form college, let alone thinking about Oxford. Mansfield was the only place that seemed welcoming, and it changed my impression of the whole university. I’m really proud of Mansfield. As an Access Officer I spent lots of time going to schools across the country to try and find other students who might not otherwise apply. My message for them is exactly the same as how I felt – even if you don’t think Oxford’s for you, Mansfield might be.”
