Wentworth College :: Shared Description

Named after Thomas Wentworth, the sixth college at the University of York and the last of the originally envisioned colleges. The college opened in 1972 consisting of a nucleus and four accommodation blocks in a mixture of CLASP and whitewashed brick buildings. Despite being the final of the original colleges to be constructed, three of the accommodation blocks were demolished (and the remaining one, D block gifted to Goodricke college) and the college reopened as a graduate only college in 2001 with four new accommodation blocks, including the large semi-circular D block at the end of the West Lake. In addition to its campus accommodation, Wentworth has accommodation at 65-67 Fulford Road for 15 students. After the departure of Goodricke College to Heslington East, Wentworth's original D block was briefly returned to the college, before temporarily becoming part of Langwith College, then returning again to Wentworth (now as E Block) after Langwith followed Goodricke to Heslington East. Renowned for many years as being some of the worst accommodation on campus, the former D (or E) Block building was demolished in 2014 to make way for the Environment department. The nucleus is the only remaining original part of Wentworth College.
