University: The University of Oxford dates back to the 11th century. There is no central campus; the university is all over the city centre consisting of nearly 40 colleges and over 100 schools looking after over 20,000 students.
Perhaps the most well known college is Christchurch College. This is the largest college in Oxford, and some scenes from the Harry Potter film series were taken inside Christcollege College as well as Divinity School and New College and all are usually open to visitors, with a small charge.
