Jesus is a wonderful place to live and work. We have some of the best graduate accommodation and facilities in the university, as well as a lovely warm and friendly atmosphere, a highly supportive study and tutorial system, and a fantastically diverse range of people, especially at graduate level.
College provides the perfect environment in which to apply yourself and succeed academically, while also being able to get involved in sports, arts, or the spiritual community. There is also plenty of fun to be had with all of the great MCR social events that our committee organises every term.
We have a new bar and cafe, which are the envy of the University, beautiful cricket, rugby and football pitches, grass tennis courts, and a croquet lawn! Our Porters are the friendliest of any Oxbridge college I have ever been to, and the location of Jesus College means that it avoids the swathes of tourists enjoying the city, while being nestled very centrally between the heart of town and the river.
I applied to Jesus because it is an understated all-rounder with a thriving and diverse community of people, enabled to excel in any area to which they apply themselves. It has not let me down, and I could not be happier with my choice!
