Friday 12th May 2017

We are very pleased to have recently purchased this new 21 bedroom property, to add to our accommodation portfolio and renew our commitment to being able to house as many Linacre students as we can. 

We are very excited and proud to market this house as the new prototype to help further Linacre’s Green commitments: this house will be fitted with energy-saving measures and be priced for our students excluding utility bills.

Alumna wins Oxford Idea Idol

Linacre Alumna Dr Alexandra Littaye has recently won this year’s Oxford Idea Idol with her company Azure.

Dr Littaye founded Azure following her four years studying at Oxford, for her DPhil in Geography and the Environment. During her studies Alexandra spent 5 months in Mexico, waking up each morning to a warm comforting cup of ‘Pinole’.

Pinole is a blue corn and comes from an ancient Aztec recipe. It is true superfood; full of antioxidants and other health-benefitting properties, as well as being gluten free.
