Kellogg College is a graduate-only constituent college of the University of Oxford in England. Founded in 1990 as Rewley House, Kellogg is the university's 36th college and the largest by number of students. It hosts research centres including the Institute of Population Ageing and the Centre for Creative Writing, and is closely identified with Lifelong learning at Oxford.

History

Kellogg College was the first home for part-time students at the University of Oxford and many of the students who join the college continue to work in their professions while they study. The college continues to promote ideals of access, openness, and inclusion. The college has accepted both women and men as students since its foundation.

The college came into being on 1 March 1990 (as Rewley House) and was renamed in honour of Will Keith Kellogg on 1 October 1994, in recognition of the generous support given by the W. K. Kellogg Foundation to the university over the preceding decades.

Kellogg College celebrated its 25th anniversary in March 2015.
