Langwith College :: Shared Description

Named after the nearby stray (in SE6548), Langwith was the second college at the University of York, opening the same day as Derwent College. Langwith College was based on the Heslington West campus from 1965-2009 comprising of four accommodation blocks (A, B, C & D) and the nucleus with its bar, dining hall (later named Hendrix Hall after Jimmy Hendrix) and academic departments (English and Education). These blocks were situated alongside the lake between Derwent and Vanbrugh. In the late 1990s Langwith gained two additional accommodation blocks (Langwith E & F blocks) of the four constructed to the north of University Road next to Heslington Church fields. These blocks become known as Derwith (as the remaining two blocks belonged to Derwent College). In 2012 Langwith left its former college buildings (which were handed over to Derwent college) and moved to a set of new college buildings on Heslington East, as part of Phase 2 of the campus expansion. This new college consists of 4 courts, named Sydney Smith (Chair of University Council from 1990 to 2001), Philip Brockbank (after the original Provost), Gordon & Francesca Horsfield and John West Taylor (Secretary to the Academic Development Committee of York Civic Trust, which supported the founding of the university) plus the Langwith Nucleus comprising the bar and college administration buildings. On Heslington East, Langwith sits between Goodricke College (to the west) and Constantine College (to the east).
