University Chest

The University Chest is a term used at the University of Oxford in connection with the financial aspects of the university and its administration. There has traditionally been an actual chest, an iron box that can be locked and used for storage.[1] The current Chest was made in the 17th century and is officially called "The Painted Chest".

Today, the modern "Chest" is in practice the finance department of the university. The central administration is located in modern buildings in Wellington Square.[1]
