Robinson College was founded with a donation by the entrepreneur and philanthropist Sir David Robinson and formally opened in 1981. It now has 80 Fellows, and around 400 undergraduate and 100 graduate students.
The red-brick main block houses the majority of the undergraduates, library, chapel and our excellent dining and conferencing facilities. In addition there are a number of older houses dating back to the 1890's, converted for college use and new accommodation blocks. The whole site centres around the large tranquil garden and lake.
