Vanbrugh Chair Michael Duncan has slammed the university’s decision for Constantine College’s new colours.
The college, which is due to open in September, will bear the purple colours of Vanbrugh.
Duncan told Vision: “Purple is Vanbrugh’s colour and it would be ridiculous for any other college to have the same. For one thing, how would you be able to tell the two apart during sport matches?
The university should reconsider and give Constantine a colour that starts to create its college identity without threatening to undermine Vanbrugh’s.”
