Hertford College is a constituent college of the University of Oxford in England. It is located on Catte Street in the centre of Oxford, directly opposite the main gate to the Bodleian Library.

The College is known for its iconic bridge, the Bridge of Sighs. As of 2006, the college had a financial endowment of 52m.

 There are 612 students (396 undergraduates and 216 graduates), plus various visiting students from universities all over the world. Some famous alumni include William Tyndale,

The Radcliffe Camera Building

 

 

The Radcliffe Camera (Camera, meaning "room" in Latin; colloquially, "Rad Cam") is a building in Oxford, England, designed by James Gibbs

 in the English Palladian style and built in 17371749 to house the Radcliffe Science Library.

 It is sited to the south of the Old Bodleian, north of St. Mary's Church, and between Brasenose College to the west and All Souls College to the east.

The Library's construction and maintenance was funded from the estate of John Radcliffe, a notable doctor, who left 40,000 upon his death in 1714.

According to the terms of his will, construction only began in 1737, although the intervening period saw the complex purchase of the site.

The exterior was complete in 1747 and the interior finished by 1748, although the Library's opening was delayed until 13 April 1749.

Upon completion, Francis Wise was appointed as its first librarian. Until 1810, the Library housed books covering a wide range of subjects,

but under Dr George Williams it narrowed its focus to the sciences.

 Williams brought the Library from a state of neglect up to date, although by 1850 the Radcliffe Library still lagged behind the Bodleian.

It was at this point that Henry Wentworth Acland, then librarian, laid out plans for the Radcliffe Library building to merge with the

 University and the Library's collection of books to be moved to the newly constructed Radcliffe Science Library, which were accepted by the Library's trustees and the University.

 It was at this point that the building became known as the Radcliffe Camera, serving as a reading room for the Bodleian.

The Bodleian Library, the main research library of the University of Oxford, is one of the oldest libraries in Europe,

and in Britain is second in size only to the British Library with over 11 million items.

Known to Oxford scholars as "Bodley" or simply "the Bod", under the Legal Deposit Libraries Act 2003

 it is one of six legal deposit libraries for works published in the United Kingdom and under Irish Law it is entitled to request a copy of each book published in the Republic of Ireland.

The Bodleian operates principally as a reference library and in general documents may not be removed from the reading rooms.

All Oxford colleges have their own libraries, which in a number of cases were established well before the foundation of the Bodleian.

Historically, the college libraries were entirely independent of the Bodleian. However, recent years have seen them brought together for certain purposes

under the umbrella of what was formerly known as Oxford University Library Services (OULS), and now as the Bodleian Libraries, of which the Bodleian is just one.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

The University Church of St Mary the Virgin

Taken from Radcliffe Square

 

The University Church of St Mary the Virgin (St Mary's or SMV for short) is the largest of  Oxfords  parish churches and the centre from which the University of Oxford  grew.

 It is situated on the north side of the High Street, and is surrounded by university and college buildings.

St Mary's possesses an eccentric baroque porch, designed by Nicholas Stone, facing High Street,

and a spire which is claimed by some church historians to be one of the most beautiful in England.

Radcliffe Square lies to the north and to the east is Catte Street.

The 13th-century tower is open to the public for a fee and provides good views across the heart of the historic university city,

especially Radcliffe Square, the Radcliffe Camera, Brasenose College and All Souls College.

Magdalen

 

Magdalen is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in England. As of 2011], the college had an estimated financial endowment of 168.1 million.

Four Magdalen alumni are currently members of the Conservative-Liberal Democrat Cabinet (down from 5 after the resignation of Chris Huhne).

Magdalen currently sits top of the Norrington Table, and holds the record for the highest ever Norrington score after over half its finalists achieved firsts in 2010.

Magdalen College was founded in 1458 by William of Waynflete, Bishop of Winchester.

The founder's statutes included provision for a choral foundation of men and boys (a tradition that has continued to the present day)

 and made reference to the pronunciation of the name of the College in English.

 The college received another substantial endowment from the estate of Sir John Fastolf of Caister Castle in Norfolk (13801459).

Another unrelated college named Magdalen Hall adjacent to Magdalen College eventually became part of Hertford College.

Regarded as one of the most beautiful of the Oxford and Cambridge colleges, Magdalen is also one of the most visited.

 It stands next to the River Cherwell and has within its grounds a deer park and Addison's Walk. Magdalen College School also lies nearby.

 The large, square Magdalen Tower is a famous Oxford landmark,

and it is a tradition since the days of Henry VII that the college choir sings from the top of it at 6 a.m. on May Morning.

The college's current president, Professor David ClaryFRS, was earlier a Fellow and Senior Tutor at Magdalene College, Cambridge.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

All Souls College

 

All Souls College (full name: The Warden and the College of the Souls of all Faithful People deceased in the University of Oxford is

 one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in England.

Unique to All Souls, all of its members automatically become Fellows, i.e., full members of the College's governing body. It has no undergraduate members,

but each year recent graduates of Oxford and other universities compete in "the hardest exam in the world" for Examination Fellowships.

It is the third wealthiest college in Oxford, with a financial endowment of 245m (2012).

The College's only source of revenue is its endowment and it ranks nineteenth among Oxford colleges with respect to total income.

The college is located on the north side of the High Street and also adjoins Radcliffe Square to the west.

To the east is The Queen's College and to the north is Hertford College.

The current Warden is John Vickers, a graduate of Oriel College, Oxford.
