About Regent’s Park College

FOUNDED: 1810

Regent’s Park College, located in the heart of the city, specialises in the humanities and social sciences. The college's beautiful quad offers a retreat from the bustle of the city but the college's students are just minutes from everything they will need for their graduate studies. 

Regent’s Park is known for its friendly atmosphere and strong sense of community. It has a thriving student population of around 200, including undergraduates, graduates, ordinands, and international visiting students.

Regent’s Park is the largest of the university’s six Permanent Private Halls (PPHs), and as such is fully part of the collegiate structure of the University of Oxford. PPHs and colleges admit and provide for students in exactly the same way, and their students study for the same University degrees. The main technical difference between the PPHs and colleges is in their governance structures, but this is a distinction that makes no difference to students. PPHs tend to be smaller than colleges and offer fewer subjects. The smaller size of a PPH community can be an advantage, as it may allow you to integrate quickly and get to know the tutors and other students.
