St Edmund Hall (‘Teddy Hall’ to residents) was founded sometime before 1317 and is the sole survivor of the original medieval halls, the teaching institutions that preceded colleges in Oxford. It’s best known for its small late-17th-century chapel, later decorated by William Morris and Edward Burne-Jones. Mohawk chief Oronhyatekha studied here in 1862 (and eloped with the principal’s daughter).
