Local nameThe Divinity School
LocationCity Centre, Oxford, UK

The Divinity School is a medieval building and room in the Perpendicular style in Oxford, England, part of the University of Oxford. Built between 1427 and 1483, it is the oldest surviving purpose-built building for university use, specifically for lectures, oral exams and discussions on theology. It is no longer used for this purpose, although Oxford does offer degrees in Theology and Religion taught by its Faculty of Theology and Religion.

The ceiling consists of very elaborate lierne vaulting with bosses, designed by William Orchard in the 1480s.
