Jesus College, University of Oxford

Jesus College Oxford, University of Oxford

After much anticipation and excitement, I can now call Jesus College my new home for this year. When I first came to visit Oxford University, I fell in love with Jesus College. Made up of three quads, a chapel and a beautiful dining hall, what is there not to love about Jesus! Jesus College is incredibly peaceful, and as you sit in one of the quads enjoying the fine weather we’ve had for the past two weeks (not any more sadly…), you cannot help but feel as if you’re a million miles away from the hustle and bustle of the city. Here are some wonderful photos that myself and my dad took around the college.

To quickly summarise a bit about Jesus College for those interested:

Queen Elizabeth 1st founded Jesus College on 27th June 1571, making it the first Protestant college founded at Oxford University. Jesus College is a relatively small college when compared to some of the other bigger ones at Oxford with 340 undergraduates, 190 graduates, 68 Fellows and 20 College lecturers. Jesus College also has many notable alumni including T. E. Lawrence, also known as Lawrence of Arabia; any many politicians such as the former British Prime Minister Harold Wilson.
