Brasenose College, Oxford Oxford

Brasenose College has a wealth of history stretching right back to 1509, when the College was first founded.

Sleeping

Oxford is the oldest university in the English-speaking world, and Brasenose College is integral to its history. You'll sleep in a college founded at the turn of the 16th century, active through the reformation and English Civil War, and still at the heart of university life over 500 years later. Step out your front door onto the cobblestone Radcliffe Square, home to the iconic Radcliffe Camera and historic Bodleian Library. On our summer courses in Oxford, the college is available for students aged between 16-24 and has a range of room types to suit all needs- from traditional to modern, both single and twin.

Eating

Brasenose College has an excellent location, situated in the centre of Oxford opposite the iconic Radcliffe Camera. Stroll across Radcliffe Square and you'll find yourself on Oxford's High Street, home to some of the city's best shops and cafes. 16-24 year olds are provided breakfast in their college dining halls - if you're assigned to Brasenose College, that would mean starting your day in the same 16th century hall where David Cameron, Malcolm Turnball, Sir William Golding, and more have dined as students.
