|St. Benet's Hall
St Benet's Hall is a constituent body within Oxford University.
In the twelfth century groups of students gathered round a Master, so forming the University of Oxford. These groups later became Halls which in turn were amalgamated into Colleges (see History). St Benet's is the nearest equivalent to such a group gathered round a Master of Arts. As a Permanent Private Hall it is the equivalent for most purposes of a small College.
St Benet's Hall was founded in 1897 so that monks of Ampleforth Abbey could take degrees at Oxford University. In the world of today it is principally a Hall of Studies which admits lay undergraduate students to study for degrees in the University of Oxford. Three monks of Ampleforth Abbey are currently in residence, and there are four graduate students.
