About

Brasenose College was founded in 1509. The main site is located opposite the Radcliffe Camera in the centre of Oxford. Bucksmore bedrooms and classrooms are located in Frewin Court, a minute’s walk from Cornmarket Street, Oxford’s busiest shopping area, whilst meals are taken in Old Court, next to the world-famous Radcliffe Camera.

Location

Oxford is based in the South-East of England and is one of the fastest-growing and most ethnically diverse cities in England. Famous for its beautiful architecture, Oxford is only 60 miles north-west of London. Located in the heart of Oxford, Brasenose College is based next to the world-renowned Bodleian Library and Radcliffe Camera. Being positioned only minutes away from the main high street provides students with a fantastic chance to explore this world-famous city and its main attractions such as Oxford Castle, Carfax Tower and the Ashmolean Museum.

Accommodation

The accommodation is based within a secure private courtyard in the Frewin Court, a quiet residence next-door to the Oxford Union with gated security, music rooms and student rooms. All bedrooms and classrooms are located in Frewin Court, whilst meals take place in Brasenose College’s dining hall.

Safety

In addition to Bucksmore’s residential centre management team and counsellors that provide pastoral care and support to students, there are also friendly and welcoming Brasenose College staff available 24 hours a day. The city centre accommodation is secured by electronic key-operated gates with a Porter’s Lodge by the entrance manned throughout the night.

History

Brasenose College was founded in 1509 by Sir Richard Sutton and William Smyth, Bishop of Lincoln. The Bishop provided the expenses for the building and Sir Richard Sutton attained the property for the site. Towards 1609 there were 87 undergraduates and 28 fellows. At the beginning of the seventeenth century, the College was in financial difficulty and by the time the Civil War began, this problem had still not been solved. Charles I made Oxford his headquarters and the city became a camp for the army. Brasenose joined other Oxford colleges and donated most of its silver for the war effort.

In the 18th century, Brasenose became one of the wealthiest Colleges in Oxford. The increasing amount of sport in Oxford started with rowing, followed by cricket and horse racing. In 1971, women were allowed to enter the College with the first woman lecturer appointed in 1972 and the first student in 1974.

Brasenose is also the home of many famous alumni including the ex-Prime Minister David Cameron, Michael Palin (Actor) and William Golding (writer).
