Why do you still show the comment which says StHilda’s is the only women’s college in Oxford. It has been mixed for 10 years. Why do you not check facts?

In contrast to the majestic architecture of the typical central Oxford colleges is a calmer and more relaxed college on the banks of the river Cherwell. The atmosphere is really friendly and the college has a subtle charm. Definitely worth walking an extra ten minutes...More
