This college is said to get its name from a brass door knocker shaped like a pigs snout and said to bring good luck. It was stolen in 1334 by a group of Linconshire students and in 1890 it was returned to the college by the purchase of Brassnose House in Stamford. The knocker no longer hangs outside for fear of another theft but hangs in the dining hall above the high table.
David Cameron was a graduate of Brassnose college, this college celebrates is 500th year in 2009
