This is the only Oxford college that dates from the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, when it received its royal charter in 1571 as "Jesus College in the University of Oxford of Queen Elizabeth's Foundation."

Great Uncle Cyril Malweisi, first man from our village to attend this robust college. Great beauty, ideal for libraries and room where Lawrence of Araby read his books. Many good memories, plenty Congo food and students so friendly. I thank you.

Always visit this college when we are in Oxford. We were lucky enough to be in the chapel while the organist was practising. The dining hall is particularly interesting with paintings of former students including Harold Wilson and Laurence of Arabia.

Just a truly beautiful place to visit. The Oxford colleges can be a bit hit and miss but nearly everyone agrees that Jesus is one of the best. Absolutely lovely.

Open day in Oxford, couldn't get over the solitude found in all of the colleges visited. But Jesus with its gardens and quad seemed to have it all.

It's always been a party that's brought to Jesus College - some quite active leaders in the student societies are based here. It's nestled in amongst Oxford's oldest colleges and finest buildings.
