A Room of One's Own is partly set in the fictional 'Oxbridge', which may be seen as representing both Oxford and Cambridge Universities. However, there are clear indications in the text that specific Cambridge places are being referred to. These include Girton College and the Wren Library at Trinity College. It is also likely that the chapel referred to is the chapel of Trinity College, and that it was in that college the narrator enjoyed her lavish lunch.
