About Linacre

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.

The College reflects Thomas Linacre's breadth of learning in its own multi-disciplinary purpose and ideals.

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. 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.
