Living at Wroxton College

Wroxton College is located in Oxfordshire, northwest of London. The college is housed in an exceptionally beautiful, completely modernized 17th century manor house. Wroxton College is an overseas campus of Fairleigh Dickinson University.

Wroxton features courses in literature, history, political science, fine arts, Core Curriculum, and sociology.

There are set requirements for qualification to attend Wroxton, but conscientious FDU students usually meet the requirements.

Oxfordshire is in the Cotswolds, an area known for its outstanding natural beauty. Explore the nearby city of Oxford or the market town of Banbury, only three miles away. Should you wish to travel further afield, Wroxton is ideally situated for trips to Birmingham and London.

Living with the beautiful grounds of Wroxton as your campus is like living in a postcard. The grounds are comprised of fifty-six acres of lawns, lakes and woodlands with a 17th century Jacobean mansion as a centerpiece. Students quickly settle into life in this amazing setting, your home for the semester.

Banbury is England’s largest market town, and it’s located just three miles from campus. Van trips throughout the week allow for shopping and socializing in town. Wroxton’s central location in the heart of England also puts it close to Oxford and Stratford-Upon-Avon.

Living at Wroxton is living in England, complete with breaks for tea every morning and afternoon. A great way to relax between classes, students often find themselves looking forward to these tea breaks offered each day.

Rooms at Wroxton are singles and doubles overlooking the beautiful grounds of the estate, and each room with its own bathroom.

What used to be Lord North’s mansion is now your residence hall. North, England’s Prime Minister during the Revolutionary War, once called Wroxton home.

Wroxton’s class sizes are small allowing for close and memorable relationships with the highly qualified British faculty.

The centuries-old buildings, a former abbey, have been modernized. There’s even a modest gym at your disposal, a nice way to blow off steam after a day of classes.

Meals are served buffet-style in the dining hall. Suggestions are welcome and students should not be surprised to find their requests for a particular dish on the colleges’ menu the following week!
