All freshers live on the college site, and around half get ensuite bathrooms. Second years live out and then third years put their names into a ballot for rooms in college for final year.

We have a very large and nice JCR to hang out in (excellent for practicing pool). The wood panelled main library is really beautiful and our libraries are open 24/7.

It is not a traditionally sporty place, but we have lots of link ups with Merton college to share facilities and teams for the larger sports.

Food is really good in the canteen where there are two formal halls a week (you need to wear the gown for these- which ends up being quite fun one you're over the weirdness) and twice a term we have formal formals (black tie four course meal for only 6 pound fifty!). Or if you prefer there are a few college kitchens you can make your own food in.

Mansfield is a beautiful college with a very warm atmosphere. Its society is progressive (perhaps the most progressive with exception for Wadham) and enjoys a lot of academic success without there being a great deal of pressure. It currently ranks 16th in the Norrington Table, having ranked 12th the year before.
