Nuffield College, Oxford

#165 of 260 in Things to do in Oxford
Nuffield College was founded at the University of Oxford in 1937 to advance postgraduate education and research in the social sciences. The College provides a stimulating research-orientated environment for postgraduate students (about 75 in number) and faculty (approximately 60 academic fellows of the College). Nuffield has been open to both men and women since its foundation and was the first college in Oxford or Cambridge to have that character.

In accordance with the wishes of Lord Nuffield the buildings and layout are in the traditional style of Oxford Colleges. The Foundation Stone (on the right of the entrance to Staircase C) was laid on 21 April 1949 by the late Earl of Halifax, then Chancellor of the University. The first meal in the Hall was served on 6 June 1958 when the Royal Charter was presented by the Duke of Edinburgh.
