This chapter examines the relationship of Oxford University to its colleges. Oxford colleges took prime responsibility for undergraduate teaching and their distinctive feature was their status as legally independent and autonomous corporations. As such, they control the admission of undergraduates and their own finances, though they were required to make a contribution to the university though the Common University Fund. Some of the largest and richest Oxford colleges include Trinity and St John's.
