The Universities of Oxford and Cambridge Act 1859 (22 & 23 Vict c 19) is an Act of the Parliament of the United Kingdom. It repealed so much of the Oxford and Cambridge Act 1571, and of all charters, etc., as imposed on the mayor, aldermen and citizens of the City of Oxford the obligation of taking any oath for the conservation of the liberties and privileges of the University of Oxford.[3]
