Table of contents


The college was originally founded (under the name of Spring Hill College) in Birmingham, as a college for Nonconformist students, who could not at that time be admitted to Oxford or Cambridge.

The college moved to Oxford following the relaxation of the religious restrictions, and was founded in its present form by George and Elizabeth Mansfield in 1886. The Victorian buildings were designed by Basil Champneys[?].
