University Buildings

The Old Bodleian Library

The Old Bodleian Library

The Bodleian is the central library of the University of Oxford. The original building, known as the Old Bodleian, is now only one amongst a series of forty separate libraries, but it remains the centre of this vast network. The core of the present building was built in 1488, and its great quadrangle was completed in 1619.
The Radcliffe Camera

The Radcliffe Camera

A part of the Bodleian Library, consisting of lower and upper reading rooms ("camera" is Latin for "room"), this building provides an incredibly inspiring place to study and write, especially the upper floor beneath the soaring space of its domed ceiling.
The Clarendon Building

The Clarendon Building

Built in 1715 from the proceeds of the Earl of Clarendon's history of the English civil war (the world's first English-language "best-seller"), this building was originally the headquarters of Oxford University Press, and now houses the central administration for the Bodleian Libraries.
The New Bodleian Library

The New Bodleian Library

Originally built in 1937, the New Bodleian has recently been transformed into the Weston Library and now houses the library's Special Collections and a fantastic new exhibition space showcasing highlights from its extensive holdings, which include the world's oldest complete text of the Gospels, 4 copies of Magna Carta, a Gutenberg Bible and a Shakespeare First Folio.
The Ashmolean Museum

The Ashmolean Museum

One of the oldest public museums in the English-speaking the world, and the world's first university museum, the Ashmolean Musuem of Art and Arcaheology was founded upon the collection of Elias Ashmole, which he donated to the university in 1677. The present building was built in 1845 to house the unversity's expanding collections.
The Sheldonian Theatre

The Sheldonian Theatre

One of the first buildings in Oxford to be built in the Renaissance style, the Sheldonian was designed in 1669 by Sir Christopher Wren, architect of the famous St Paul's Cathedral in London. The theatre is the venue for all the university's graduation ceremonies and other formal occasions.
Oxford University Press

Oxford University Press

By 1820, Oxford University Press had outgrown its original headquarters in the Clarendon Building, and moved instead to a larger and even more imposing home, with this front gate leading to a monumental quadrangle. OUP is the world's largest university press, and home to many of the world's most famous works, including the Oxford English Dictionary.
St Mary's Church

St Mary's Church

The oldest of all the buildings owned by the University (as opposed to individual colleges), St Mary's is the official church of the university and was the venue for all formal ceremonies for many centuries, until the building of the Sheldonian. The University's council, called Congregation, is first recorded as meeting here in 1252.
The Museum of Natural History

The Museum of Natural History

Founded in 1860 as the centre for scientific study at Oxford, the Museum is housed in a stunning example of neo-Gothic architecture and holds the university’s internationally significant collection of geological and zoological specimens, including full dinosaur skeletons and preserved examples of the dodo.
The Oxford Union

The Oxford Union

The university's debating society is housed in a beautiful set of buildings complete with stunning library, hall and dining rooms.
