Founded in 1264, Merton is one of the oldest and most beautiful colleges in Oxford with medieval and 17th-century buildings and a fine garden protected by the city wall.

Nobel Prize winners and other cultural and scientific leaders, such as T.S Eliot, J.RR Tolkien, and Sir Andrew Wiles,- perhaps the most famous living mathematician who proved the 350-year-old conjecture known as Fermat’s Last Theorem), adorn the list of eminent Mertonians.
