History to the present day
The College of the Holy and Undivided Trinity in the University of Oxford of the foundation of Thomas Pope' is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford and was founded in 1555. Located in the very centre of Broad Street next to Blackwell's book shop and the fictional Inspector Morse's favourite pub, the White Horse, it is enclosed by iron gates giving the College an open and accessible appearance.
Famous alumni include: The Blessed Cardinal John Henry Newman; Lord Baltimore (who founded the colony of Maryland); Frederick, Lord North (Prime Minister 1770-82); William Pitt, Earl of Chatham (Prime Minister 1766-68); playwright Sir Terence Rattigan; Mr Stephen Lacey, BBC gardening presenter.

A full English breakfast is included in the room rate and available each morning. Breakfast is self service, with a wide range of hot and cold food, available in the historic ground floor Dining Hall which dates from 1618 and has leather seated and backed chairs (not benches).
During term Fellows and students have formal dinner in the Dining Hall six nights a week. They all wear gowns, Fellows dine at High Table and a Scholar says Grace in Latin.
Grounds and gardens
The extensive gardens are available for guests to enjoy and garden chairs are provided in the summer months for you to relax in. During the Easter vacation the 'wilderness' part of the garden is filled with thousands of flowering bulbs. The University Parks are only a short walk away for those wishing to stroll by the river.
Ironing facilities are available in the College laundry and visitors staying in College for more than a few days may wish to purchase a card from the Lodge to use the washers and dryers.
Guests are most welcome to visit the Chapel, which is prized as a masterpiece of English baroque. The statues on the Tower are attributed to Caius Cibber and represent Geometry, Astronomy, Theology and Medicine. The first chapel in Oxford to be designed on pure classical principles, this building was hailed by contemporaries as the most magnificent in the University. The tomb of Sir Thomas Pope, founder of Trinity, is in the Chapel and he is the only founder of an Oxford College to be buried in his own College.
