"Merton College.MERTON is..." Oxford University & Colleges Tip by Krystynn

Oxford University & Colleges, Oxford: 27 reviews and 24 photos


Favorite thing: <b><font color=blue>Merton College</b></font>.

MERTON is one of the smaller Oxford colleges here and claims to be the oldest of them all. Hm... Founded in 1264 by <i>Walter de Merton</i>, the then-Bishop of Rochester, it has a reputation for high academic achievement, having come top of the (<i>now unofficial</i>) Norrington Table many times in recent years.

On a lighter note, <b>Merton College</b> also has a reputation for good food... which is generally considered to be true! <i>Hey</i>, that's what my guide-book stated. <i>Any ex-Merton college grads out there in cyberspace?</i>

<b><font color=#3300CC>Their Address: Merton Street.

Open: Monday to Friday 2PM - 4PM.

Saturday and Sunday 10AM - 4PM. </b></font>
