About

Wadham College is part of the University of Oxford. Students are housed in Wadham College’s brand new Dorothy Wadham Annexe. Each week, students have a traditional Oxford University Formal dinner at Wadham College’s main site.

Location

The Dorothy Wadham Annexe is located approximately 20 minutes from Oxford city centre. The medieval city of Oxford revolves around the prestigious University of Oxford. Nicknamed the ‘City of Dreaming Spires’ by the poet Matthew Arnold, Oxford is known for its beautiful buildings just 60 miles north-west of London. Since the arrival of the Saxons, the buildings demonstrate English architectural periods including the mid-18th century Radcliffe Camera.

Accommodation

Completed in October 2019, students live in modern, single en-suite bedrooms. Designed for use by summer schools as well as year-round students, bedrooms are arranged in small flats of between 4-7 rooms, sharing a common room and kitchen/dining space. The flats are arranged around a beautiful garden quad proving a tranquil green space for students. There are also large seminar spaces, teaching spaces fully equipped with built-in AV, and a large common room on-site. In addition, a laundry, a computer room and secure bicycle storage are available. Meals, classrooms and accommodation are all provided on-site.

History

Wadham College was founded in 1610 by Nicholas and Dorothy Wadham during the reign of King James I. In the 1600s, Wadham became a focus of scientific interest within Europe as the College became a meeting place for the experimenters who formed the Royal Society in 1660. Part of this movement one of Wadham’s most famous alumni is Sir Christopher Wren. Originally a male-only college, in Wadham became one of the first colleges allow the admission of women as full members at all levels. Today, Wadham is one of the largest colleges in Oxford, with 200 graduate students and some 450 undergraduates.
