For two centuries after the foundation of Sidney Sussex no new college was built, but in 1800 Downing College was founded under the will of Sir George Downing. In the nineteenth century the growth of the numbers of students and the addition of many new subjects to the university curriculum led to expansion in many directions. Selwyn College was established as a Church of England foundation in 1882; two women's colleges, Girton and Newnham, have grown up and flourished; several theological colleges (Nonconformist as well as Anglican) have been established; while Fitzwilliam House is the headquarters of a prosperous non-collegiate body.
