Academic Facilities


Corpus Library is one of the best college libraries in Oxford and is housed in the magnificent original 16th century Old Library. More modern additions include spacious reading rooms, a computerised catalogue, and online access to a variety of electronic resources.  There is wireless access and cabling for wired Ethernet access to the University network and the Internet. The Library is open 24 hours a day, making it a popular place for undergraduates and graduates to study. There are approximately 60,000 books on the open shelves and both tutors and students are constantly recommending purchases to keep this extensive collection up-to-date. We endeavour to cater to the reading needs of all our students but anything not available in the Corpus Library can usually be found in the Bodleian Library, as well as the University's faculty and departmental libraries.

For further information please visit the Library pages.

Computing and IT

All student rooms, both on and off the main site, have connection points for the College Ethernet network, which gives broadband access to the University network and the Internet.

Corpus also has a computer suite on the main College site with ten PCs available for use, 24 hours a day, by any member of the College. A scanner and a CD writing service are also available. There are three high-capacity laser printers and a photocopier in the suite, which can print in mono up to A3 size and full colour up to A4 size. Additional terminals for access to E-mail and library resources are provided in all student common rooms and in the catalogue room of the College library.

The College file server provides secure file storage and automated anti-virus software updates for all users. Corpus has its own IT support team, who are available to help students with any queries or problems relating to IT and computing.

Meeting Rooms

Corpus has a variety of seminar and meeting rooms on the main College site, with seating available for between 12 to 80 people. As well as being used for teaching, meetings and seminars, these rooms are also available to undergraduates for meetings, rehearsals and functions. The College is also home to The MBI Al Jaber Building (completed July 2009), details of which are available here.
