Beautiful grounds, an amazing chapel and the Dinning Hall that turned down the Harry Potter Movie. Maybe the last item was a mistake, but the college is renowned for its magnificent common areas and unique brick architecture. Conveniently close to the Museum of Natural History...More

Founded in 1870, this college has mostly brick buildings as opposed to the older colleges' stone buildings. The college was designed by Butterfield and the architecture was quite controversial at one time.
