Wadham College
Wadham College is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford. It is located in the centre of Oxford, at the intersection of Broad Street and Parks Road.

Wadham College was founded in 1610 by Dorothy Wadham, according to the will of her late husband Nicholas Wadham, a member of an ancient Somerset family. The central buildings, a notable example of Jacobean architecture, were designed by the architect William Arnold and erected between 1610 and 1613.
Amongst Wadham's most famous alumni is Sir Christopher Wren. Wren was part of a brilliant group of experimental scientists at Oxford in the 1650's, the Oxford Philosophical Club, which included Robert Boyle and Robert Hooke.
Wadham is a liberal and progressive college which aims to maintain the diversity of its student body and a friendly atmosphere. It has one of the highest intakes of State-educated students in the University of Oxford and it was amongst the first group of Oxford colleges to admit women, in 1974.
Wadham is one of the largest colleges of the University of Oxford, with approximately 425 undergraduates, 160 graduate students, and 65 fellows
