University College

University College owes its origins to William of Durham, who died in 1249, making it the oldest college in Oxford and Cambridge.

It contains many interesting buildings, both old and new.  The Chapel dates back to 1636. Its hand-painted glass windows by Abraham van Linge and the war memorials in the Antechapel are worth the visit.

The Hall was also started in 1636 but not finished until 1656. The current   stained-glass windows were fitted in the gothic style in the1650s and include the coats of arms of many benefactors to the college.

The Shelley Memorial is undoubtedly one of the most remarkable sculptures in Oxford, and its idealised depiction of the drowned Shelley washed ashore never fails to fascinate and disturb. Percy Bysshe Shelley came up to Univ in 1810, and was expelled the following year for a publication entitled The Necessity of Atheism. At the time, the college thought it had washed its hands of a troublesome student; it only realised later that it had expelled one of England’s greatest romantic poets.
