About St Antony’s College
The Main Building, which houses college offices and the main library, dates from the nineteenth century, as do some of the residences. The Founder’s Building, opened in 2000 to coincide with the College’s fiftieth anniversary, contains accommodation, ranging from ensuite study bedrooms to one and two bedroom flats, seminar rooms, a music room and fitness suite. But the social hub of the College is the award-winning Hilda Besse Building built in the 1960s which contains the fine dining Hall, Common Rooms, Meeting rooms, Buttery and Bar. There is also a well-appointed, air-conditioned lecture theatre and pleasant gardens. St Antony’s 40 Governing Body Fellows all have international reputations in their specialist fields and, in combination, provide a unique insight into today’s global issues. There are more than 400 students from some 77 different countries studying for postgraduate degrees and each year around 100 visiting senior members from the academic, diplomatic, business and political worlds come to the College.
St Antony’s College is the most cosmopolitan of the seven graduate colleges of the University of Oxford, specialising in international relations, economics, politics and history of particular parts of the world.
The Gateway Buildings
The College is pleased to announce a major new building project due for completion in 2013. The Gateway Buildings will provide 54 additional student ensuite bedrooms, a significant increase to our student accommodation. The buildings will form a new entrance to the College from the Woodstock Road and will also house the Porters’ Lodge, administrative offices and workspace for Senior Members.
Inevitably the building work which is planned to last from July 2011 to March 2013 will cause disruption to the College site. We hope that all students, staff and visitors will be understanding during this period and will agree that the new buildings will be an important and exciting addition to the College site.
