GW England Banner

Founded in 1624, Pembroke College is located in the heart of Oxford and has been home to many great thinkers and writers, such as Samuel Johnson, J.R.R. Tolkien, J. William Fulbright, and James Smithson, the founder of the Smithsonian Institution.  Oxford is the oldest university in the English speaking world and lays claim to nine centuries of continuous existence. More than 130 nationalities are represented among its student population of 18,000.

With just under 400 undergraduate students and around 30 visiting students from the U.S., Pembroke College is a small, friendly and welcoming community for GW students. Study at Pembroke combines the resources of a large, world renowned university with a small, supportive community of fellows and tutors who are focused on helping the individual student's progress and well-being.

All undergraduates belong to the Pembroke College Junior Common Room, which organizes many social events. In addition, students can follow Oxford tradition by participating in the myriad clubs, societies and sports activities that are an essential part of university life.  Students also have access to the Oxford Union, a world-famous debating society that attracts influential speakers from around the world - including prime ministers, presidents, musicians, and journalists - to engage in conversation on pressing issues.
