A highly convincing pastiche of the original 1886 house on the college site, the Griffiths Building provides 28 single and 4 double study bedrooms. This is the third in a series of additions to the college, all using the same red brick (known as Linacre College Special Blend) and the Queen Anne style of the original house, including many design details. The Bamborough Building (1986, shown) and the Abraham Building (1995) also provide student accommodation.
