St Antony's College was founded following an unexpected bequest from the French businessman, Monsieur Antonin Besse, with the aim of promoting international relations. The college is housed in a former 19th century Gothic convent building and a modern, 1970's block comprising dining hall, common rooms and seminar rooms, which won an award from the RIBA and the Concrete Society.
St Antony's College is the perhaps the most cosmopolitan of the seven graduate colleges of the University of Oxford, specialising in international relations, economics, politics and history of particular parts of the world.
It is open by appointment only.
