A College Like No Other

We are pleased to announce that Teddy Hall has published a beautifully illustrated book which stands as a portrait of St Edmund Hall and a lively celebration of its past and present.

It produces a rich overview of Hall life – the intriguing history of a medieval Hall and its transformation into a distinguished college within the University of Oxford. It will record the stories of place, people, communities and events. The book is edited by former Principal Professor Keith Gull and is a shared project where the writings of many Hall personalities come together to illustrate the diverse aspects of college life, both academic and social, through all periods of the Hall’s existence.

The book is split in to the following chapters:

• Origins and Evolution
• Twentieth-Century Transitions
• Buildings, Gardens & Art
• Hall Life
• Academic Life
• Aularian Recollections

This is the first such celebration of life at the Hall and a treasure for Aularians and friends. We are rightly proud of the Hall’s claim to a special, distinctive and distinguished place in Oxford.

For those who haven’t pre-ordered, we hope the book will soon be available to purchase online via the online University of Oxford shop. This is currently closed due to the pandemic. We have copies at the Hall and can post to individuals once per week. Please email for further information.
