There are many opportunities to get involved in all kinds of sports and activities, both on a college and a university level. The JCRs do a great job in providing alternative entertainment and welfare, where the University does not.×

Colleges are all beautiful but some allocate rooms by how much you are willing to pay (Keble is one example). Good to choose a college that's relatively near to your lectures, labs, libraries etc although most are pretty central×

Accommodation obviously varies hugely between colleges, and it's hard to comment on the quality of other colleges' because I don't really go! I'd say be very careful when selecting which college you're going to apply to in terms of the cost of accommodation, and things like whether you get to live in for all three years, or if you're expected to move out. Oxford is pretty expensive, so if you end up at a college that makes you live out for one of your years, you might want to see if they have some sort of compensation scheme where they make up some of the difference of the cost (to living in college). Also, colleges vary in terms of how they charge for food and stuff - some will charge a standalone fee for food (which can be in the hundreds) regardless of how frequently you actually eat in hall. Conversely, other colleges do it on a pay as you go basis - one probably works out a lot cheaper than the other! Finally, be careful of the location of the college you apply to. Some colleges are pretty far out of town, which is arguably a bit of a pain. St Hugh's and St Hilda's are the furthest out, and St Anne's is quite far out too. However it's important to remember that Oxford is a tiny, tiny place. So, a college that is 'far out' in Oxford would probably be very central in another university town!×

Oxford has a sports complex at about 20 mins walking distance from city centre, with swimming pool, basketball court that can also be used as badminton court, and also a pretty well-equipped gym for working out.×

League table rankings
Here's where this university ranks in the three main league tables (where available), which are calculated using a combination of stats that they each weight in different ways. They’re a handy guide but don’t offer the full picture – just because a university is top (or bottom) of the league tables doesn’t mean it is (or isn’t) the right choice for you.
