Postcards of the Past

University College, Oxford

University College (known as "Univ") is one of the oldest of the colleges which make up Oxford University, having been founded in 1249 by William of Durham. For its first 300 years the college was only open to fellows studying theology, and it was not until 1979 that Univ began accepting female students. The college is one of the largest in Oxford in terms of student population.
