History

Wycliffe Hall was established in 1877 by a group of leading evangelical churchmen as a centre for training Christian leaders and is named after the "Morning Star of the Reformation" John Wycliffe. It became a Permanent Private Hall of the university in 1996. It is a centre for Evangelical Anglican study in the University of Oxford.

As part of becoming a Permanent Private Hall, Wycliffe Hall now also offers courses in academic theology and has a limited number of both undergraduates and postgraduates. It was established alongside Ridley Hall, Cambridge as a pair of theological colleges with an expressly Evangelical ethos.[1]

Wycliffe has a football XI and a cricket XI, but for other sports students represent Queen's College, Oxford.
