Our Residence

Our Residence - The Oxford Prep Experience


Corpus Christi College first opened its doors to students in 1517. It has been home to our Oxford Prep Experience, a summer study abroad program, for nearly 20 years. It boasts many famous alumni, including Isaiah Berlin, Vikram Seth, and Lucy Atkins. The College opens onto the ancient cobblestones of Merton Street, while hidden passageways lead to some of Oxford’s most beautiful gardens. With its secluded gardens, centuries-old dining hall, and state-of-the-art auditorium, not to mention its remarkable views of Christ Church Cathedral, Corpus Christi is one of the most attractive colleges in the University of Oxford.

Student accommodations during our study abroad programs in the UK are dorm style - single or double rooms with shared facilities. Single or double rooms with private bathrooms are available at an additional cost and are subject to availability.

We are currently evaluating all aspects of our programs and incorporating the most up-to-date health and safety standards. We’ll continue to make changes as guidance evolves from the CDC and WHO, as well as our many partners, including local and national officials from our host campuses and countries. If anything changes from what is listed on the website, we will inform enrolled students via email as soon as possible. Click here to learn more about our health and safety efforts.
