The University of York was one of the seven universities founded from scratch in England in the early 1960s. As with the other six, it was sited on a green-field campus on the edge of the city. It has been a collegiate university from the start, though the colleges work differently from those of Oxford and Cambridge in that they are not autonomous financially, nor are they responsible for admission of students or appointment of staff. Early information on the scheme of dress is very limited. All that has come to light from the University’s archives are two entries in the minutes of the General Academic Board, and one from those of the Academic Dress Committee.
