If you want to change the world, come to Somerville.
Somerville was founded to include the excluded. It was created for women when universities refused them entry, and for people of diverse beliefs when the establishment religion was widely demanded.
Today, you'll find a co-educational community who share a culture of progressive thinking, academic excellence, and fun. We are a college that doesn't follow the pack; where you can walk on the grass all year round and academic gowns are seldom worn.
We hope you'll come and visit us soon!
