Founded in 1264, Merton is one of the oldest colleges in Oxford and, with its medieval buildings, one of the most beautiful. The College admits around 90 undergraduate and 90 graduate students each year, and has a strong sense of community and a friendly atmosphere.
Merton’s 750th anniversary campaign, "Sustaining Excellence", seeks to raise £30 million to maintain the College’s position as an institution of academic excellence. Donations to the Annual Fund enable us to support key projects including student support, preserving and safeguarding the tutorial system, financing individual fellowships, and protecting and resourcing our historic buildings.
Donations to any of the below areas will have a tangible impact on Merton’s students and enable the College to continue to excel.
