You are here
Welcome to Linacre College
We are delighted that you will be joining us at Linacre and we look forward to welcoming you to the College community.
We know that you receive a huge amount of information before moving to Oxford and during your first few weeks as a new student, so we have created this page to help you find the essentials, discover what to do when and who to ask for further information. We hope that this page will help you transition to Oxford and College life, and support you as you settle in.
One of the most important documents for you to read is the College Handbook, which hosts a wealth of information on all things Linacre.
