Students rowing on the Cherwell, 1895

History

Founded in 1893, St Hilda’s was the last of the women’s colleges established in Oxford to give women the right  to continue their education. Today, the College remains true to its pioneering roots and we continue to strive for equality as well as excellence.

St Hilda’s College will reach its 125th anniversary in 2018. This also marks our 10th anniversary as a 'mixed' college that accepts both male and female students. We will continue to take pride in our historical legacy as we reach this milestone and in the years to come.
