Worcester college was founded in 1714 by Sir Thomas Cookes. It was named after the county of Worcestershire. The architectural styles are diverse. In the first quad, an imposing neoclassical building faces a row of residential cottages called, 'The Cottages', said to be the oldest in Oxford. The College holds a commemoration ball every three years in June. Former students include Russel T. Davis and Emma Watson.
