International Scholarship at Brasenose College in UK 2022
Brasenose College (BNC) is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. It was founded in 1509, with the library and chapel added in the mid-17th century and the new quadrangle in the late 19th and early 20th centuries.
The main college site comprises three quads, the original Old Quad, a small quad known as the Deer Park, and the large New Quad, as well as a collection of smaller houses facing Radcliffe Square and the High Street. The original college buildings comprised a single two-story quad, incorporating the original kitchen of Brasenose Hall on the south side. In the 17th century, a third floor was added to the quad to form the current Old Quad.
A separate chapel was also built to the south, connected to the quad by a library built over a cloister as shown in a 1670 print, thus enclosing the Deer Park. The cloister was for a time the college burial ground, and evidence suggests there were at least 59 people buried there, with the last recorded burial being in 1754. The cloister was filled in to make two or three chambers in around 1807, used as student bedrooms or administrative offices until 1971 when the space was converted into the graduate common room.
More recently the graduate common room moved to the Old Quad, and the space, still known as the “Old Cloisters” has been used as a library overspill area, a teaching room and, in 2010–11, as the temporary Senior Common Room. In January 2015, archaeological investigations began as a prelude to a major building project that will restore the stonework and integrate the lower and upper reading rooms, greatly enhancing the college’s library provision. The nickname for the Chapel Quad is often thought to be a friendly jibe at Magdalen College which has a genuine deer park known as The Grove.
