About Girton College

Girton has a proud history as an institution that changed the world. Founded in 1869 by Emily Davies and Barbara Bodichon, the College is distinctive for being Britain’s first residential college for the degree level education of women.

The College has always set the pace on matters of equality and inclusion – Girton was also the first of the Women’s Colleges to go mixed over forty years ago. But that was just the start. From the day the door first opened, to as recently as last week, Girton has had the knack of changing people’s lives.

They, in turn, have gone on to shape the future – or some part of it at least.
