Modern Trinity

The post-war years saw a major transformation in the appearance of Trinity, when the old quadrangles were refaced with new stone to repair the damage caused by centuries of air pollution.

The fellowship has expanded to include tutors in the sciences, politics, modern languages, and management. The Middle Common Room was created in 1964, and a Tutor for Graduates appointed to care for the needs of postgraduate students. In 1966 two new buildings and the Library Quadrangle were erected to accommodate the growing number of members. Trinity also began developing sites in North Oxford to ensure that high quality accommodation was available for all members. In 1979 the first female undergraduates were admitted as part of the University’s transition from single-sex to co-educational colleges.
