Governance and Policies

[Please note that some of our guidance, policies and procedures related to College governance are still under development. This page will be updated accordingly.]

College Governance

Reuben College was established in 2019 and is a Society of the University of Oxford under Statute V of the University’s Statutes. The College is governed by Council Regulations 1 of 2019. The links below provide access to the full text of these University statutes and regulations.

The College By-Laws were made by the College’s Governing Body, in accordance with powers granted under University Council Regulations 1 of 2019, and came into force 13th July 2020. As a Society, the College’s By-Laws are approved by Council, and stand as a bridge between its establishing Council Regulations and its Governing Body policies and procedures.


As a Society of the University of Oxford, Reuben College operates in accordance with University policies and procedures. As a new college, some of our specific policies are under review by the Governing Body, and will be published here when available.
