This chapter examines the growth in the number of students or junior members of the University of Oxford from 1900 to 1990. During this period the annual number of men and women matriculating as members of the University increased by nearly fivefold. One of the recurring themes of the numerous and striking changes in Oxford life during this period is the gradual erosion of contrasts in both the representation and the experience of different types of junior member, whether scholar, commoner, male or female, rich or poor, students of the arts or of the sciences.
