Welcome to St Anne’s! We hope you are looking forward to joining us this coming Michaelmas term. Here is some information you may find useful to prepare for your first few weeks in Oxford:

Fresher’s Week Schedule 2023

You will find below a provisional Fresher’s Week schedule we have prepared for you. When it’s closer to the time of the events, please check your emails and our Facebook and WhatsApp groups for the latest updates.


The Middle Common Room

Welcome to our family

The MCR is your second family in Oxford; we take care of your welfare, organize a wide variety of socials and academic events, and meet multiple times a term to discuss college life at our MCR General meetings. Our common room is located in Eleanor Plumer House – visit our dedicated webpage to learn more.


Find your College parents

The MCR runs an annual mentorship programme to match new students with a current student at St Anne’s on a similar academic program. It’s a great opportunity to meet other MCR members, and receive tips on how to make the most of the University, your department, and College.

Being a mentee is not a big time commitment at all. Depending on your schedule, you could grab coffee with your mentor, go for a walk, or simply exchange contact details in case you ever need any help. I’ve been a mentor and a mentee myself, and have met some wonderful people through the programme.
