The New Building was built across a large lawn to the north of the Great Quad beginning in 1733. Lewis had their rooms in this building, and as there are very few student rooms (many being occupied by tutors), they are highly sought after. The irregularly shaped St John's Quad is the first on entering the college, and includes the Outdoor Pulpit and old Grammar Hall.Its spacious setting is due to the builders' intentions to create an entirely new quad, but only one side was completed. It connects to the Great Quad via the Perpendicular Gothic Founder's Tower, which is richly decorated with carvings and pinnacles and has carved bosses in its vault.These flowers grow in very few places, and have been recorded growing in the meadow since around 1785.Once the flowering has finished, the deer are moved in for the summer and autumn. Pine from The Night Manager, and is one of Britain’s hottest new actors.Rumour has it that Tom Hiddleston is the next 007, something we could definitely get behind!
The college has large grounds, close to the city centre.
In 1822, the north side was in bad shape, and was knocked down while most of the fellows were away from college (only a small group of fellows were in favour of demolishing it). In the early 1900s, renovations were performed, and it was returned to a more mediaeval character.
Student rooms were installed in the (very large) roof space in the 1980s.
The hall and chapel were built at similar times, though both have undergone some changes in the intervening years.
The Cloister or Great Quad was built in 1474-80 (also by Orchard) and has been altered several times since then.
