Magdalene College was founded in about 1428 as a hostel for Benedictine student monks on a site just north of the river. For a time it was known as Buckingham College, but after being refounded in 1542 it took the name of the College of St Mary Magdalene. It is one of the smaller colleges of the university, with just over 300 undergraduates.
