FDU was the first American university to open a campus in England. A Jacobean mansion which incorporates the remains of a medieval abbey, Wroxton College opened in 1965. Wroxton Abbey, near Banbury, Oxfordshire, was the former home of Prime Minister Lord Frederick North, Earl of Guildford (1732-92).
