At Somerville you’ll meet a community that’s diverse, international and open-minded. And you’ll discover a culture that’s intelligent, hard-working and ambitious. Why not take a look?
Somerville was founded to include the excluded. It was created for women when universities refused them entry, and for people of diverse beliefs when the establishment religion was widely demanded. Now its female and male students represent the world and many Somervillians go on to change that world, too. We hope you like it.
