All first-year undergraduate students are housed in one of the 38 colleges that make up the University of Oxford.

A typical college has a dining hall, a chapel, a library, a college bar, senior, middle (postgraduate), and junior common rooms, 200-400 student rooms, and lodgings for the college president and other dons.

The Radcliffe Camera, built in the mid-eighteenth century, reflects every English architectural period since the invasion of the Saxons. Oxford is regarded as the “city of dreaming spires,” a name used by poet Matthew Arnold to describe the University of Oxford buildings’ harmonious beauty. It is mostly a student city, with much of it owned by the university, resulting in student discounts in practically all sectors. Oxford added a significant new research capability in the natural and applied sciences, including medicine, over the twentieth and early twenty-first century For the past 15 years, the University’s estate has grown at a rate of roughly 5% per year. Oxford has made enormous contributions to society not only locally, but also nationally and internationally, throughout the last eight decades.
