Linacre College, Oxford provides a stimulating intellectual and social environment for post-graduate and research students from Britain and around the world. Founded in 1962, the College's name commemorates an outstanding Renaissance figure, Thomas Linacre (c.1460-1524) who was a distinguished humanist, medical scientist and classicist whose accomplishments established him as one of the great scholars of his time.
Linacre College has a thoroughly modern, international character. It was one of the first mixed Colleges in Oxford and has a single Common Room for all College Members. This means Linacre students and Fellows (the academics attached to the College) eat and socialize together. Its membership includes students from over fifty different countries. Set in the delightful surroundings of parks and playing fields, Linacre is located adjacent to the University science area, within easy reach of all principal university departments and libraries, and only five minutes' walk from the centre of Oxford.
Linacre has a well-deserved reputation as an environmentally-friendly College. It is the first Oxford College to offset its carbon emissions and it has its own environmental policy, (https://www.linacre.ox.ac.uk/about-linacre/sustainability) where you can also find details of all Linacre's eco-friendly activities. Linacre is also the first college in the University of Oxford to have been awarded full fair trade status.
