Mansfield College occupies one of the most attractive sites in Oxford. The 1886 buildings, which house all the College’s public rooms, are regarded as amongst the finest work of the important Victorian architect, Basil Champneys. Mansfield’s spacious site is close to all the libraries and shops, yet in a quiet position near to the University parks and River Cherwell.
