Turing College

Turing College is our newest college and is named after Alan Turing, who was a British mathematician, logician, cryptanalyst and computer scientist.

During World War II, he worked for Britain's codebreaking centre at Bletchley Park.

Turing was convicted of 'gross indecency' in 1952, effectively for being gay, at a time when homosexual activity was illegal. In September 2009, the then Prime Minster Gordon Brown apologised for Turing’s treatment and in 2013 Turing was granted a posthumous royal pardon.

Turing is now widely acclaimed for his pioneering work in mathematics and computing and for the very significant role that he played at Bletchley Park and elsewhere.
