On Radcliffe Square you will find the Old Schools Quadrangle, the oldest building of the Bodeian Library. Other buildings on this square that are part of the Bodeian Library are Duke Humfrey's Library above the Divinity School, the Radcliffe Camera, and the Clarendon Building.

The tower that is part of the Quadrangle is amazing. It's called the Tower of Five Orders and is named so because on top of the tower are five ornamented columns and each of them is one of the five orders of classical architecture, Doric, Tuscan, Ionic, Corinthian and Composite.

Address: Radcliffe Square
Directions: The Quad is situated on Radcliffe Square
