I made a quick visit to Oxford University to give a research talk in the Computer Science department. My schedule allowed a bit of extra time to explore, and (with the help of two generous graduate students) I was able to see some of the major colleges within the university, as well as some of the main shopping district. The campus (and town) is impressively old, with elegant academic buildings at every turn. A quick climb to the top of the tower on University Chapel gave me an excellent vantage point to see the overall layout, and one student’s tour included a stop in the Hogwarts dining hall – better known as Christchurch College dining hall. Impressive place! More photos in the gallery.
