Dear Nicola,

Firstly, I'd like to apologise that I didn't answer your first message. As you only gave your first name, but no surname or the company you work for, I believed the message to be junk mail and deleted it. I have since found out that we are obliged to provide this info under the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

The University's official response to your request is as follows:

"Thank you for your recent request for information under
the Freedom of Information Act 2000.

Please find below information in response to your questions.

colleges at York differ from those at older-established
collegiate universities (such as Oxford and Cambridge) in
that they have no academic or financial independence. They
do not, for example, have private endowments, play a part
in determining who should be admitted to the University,
and are not distinct legal entities. This means that they
are not separate public authorities for the purposes of
the Freedom of Information Act but are part of the
University of York. Further information on procurement and
supplying to the University can be found from its website:
