Exeter College information
Founded in 1314, Exeter is known for its elaborate 17th-century dining hall and ornate Victorian Gothic chapel housing The Adoration of the Magi, a William Morris tapestry (Morris was an undergraduate here), and a psychedelic bombast of gold mosaic and stained glass. The college inspired the fictional Jordan College in the His Dark Materials trilogy by Philip Pullman, who also studied at Exeter.
