Worcester College is a blend of contrasts. It is a historic institution at the University of Oxford, dating back to 1714. At the same time, it is inherently modern, with a diverse student body and a host of old and new buildings from four different architects. It is located near the centre of Oxford, yet its extensive gardens add a rural touch.
This is perhaps what makes Worcester College an irresistibly appealing, social college, with its Commemoration Ball proving popular throughout Oxford.
