Administrative / Biographical History

Stanford in Britain

Stanford University leased Harlaxton Manor from the Jesuits in 1965, and with only 80 students its first year, it was the first American university in Great Britain. Students attended classes from Monday to Thursday often travelling on the weekends, similar to the Harlaxton schedule today. Until 1971, Stanford University used the Manor as part of its British study abroad program, instructing students in British traditions, history, and culture.
