The University of Oxford (informally Oxford University or simply Oxford) is a collegiate research university located in Oxford, England. While having no known date of foundation, there is evidence of teaching as far back as 1096, making it the oldest university in the English-speaking world, and the world's second-oldest surviving university.

In 2011/12, the University had an income of £1,016m; key sources were research grants (£409m), teaching funding (£204m), and academic fees (£173m). The colleges had a total income of £361m, of which £47m was flow-through from the University.

While the University has the larger annual income and operating budget, the colleges have a larger aggregate endowment: over £2.9bn compared to the University's £850m. The Central University's endowment, along with some of the colleges', is managed by the University's wholly owned endowment management office, Oxford University Endowment Management, formed in 2007.

The University launched a fundraising campaign in May 2008, called Oxford Thinking – The Campaign for the University of Oxford. This is looking to support three areas: academic posts and programmes, student support, and buildings and infrastructure and having passed its original target of £1.25 billion in March 2012, the target has now been raised to £3 billion.
