"The clever men at Oxford...know all that there is to be knowed. But they none of them know one half as much...As intelligent Mr. Toad!"
–Kenneth Grahame
Wikipedia has a page called:

Oxford University is an Industrial Era Wonder in Civilization VI. It must be built on flatland Grasslands or Plains adjacent to a Campus with a University.


Oxford University is immensely valuable to any player who wants to win a Science Victory, providing two free techs and an impressive bonus to its city's Civ6Science Science output in addition to the Scientist6 Great Scientist points. However, its two slots for GreatWorkWriting6 Great Works of Writing are also valuable to Civ6Culture Culture-oriented players, who may want to build Oxford University just to deny it to their rivals and stop them from pulling too far ahead in the technological race.

Civilopedia entry Edit

The oldest university in the English-speaking world (and, thus, of Merry Ol’ England), instruction has been taking place at Oxford University since c. 1096 AD. It grew from a small institution when, in 1148, Henry II granted it a royal charter and then, in 1167, prohibited British students from attending the University of Paris. Although it was a Royalist center during the English Civil War, having survived that error the university has since taken little part in politics. In the mid-1800s the Oxford curriculum was greatly influenced by the reformed model of German higher education which came with the arrival of scholars such as Pusey, Jowett and Muller. The first women’s college (Lady Margaret Hall) at Oxford University was established in 1878. And in 1974, five previously all-male colleges there admitted women for the first time. Things haven’t been the same since.

Trivia Edit

  • The Prince of Denmark's March by Jeremiah Clarke is played during the narration when Oxford University is completed.
  • The quote by Kenneth Grahame about Mr. Toad was the theme song from the 1990 stop-motion animation Oh, Mr. Toad, an adaptation of Kenneth Grahame's children literature.
