college of winterhold
The College of Winterhold is a school for magic in the city of Winterhold. The campus is large and fortress-like in appearance. The buildings are separated by a central courtyard and various walkways. It functions much like the Mages Guild in other parts of Tamriel, except in its being a singular and completely independent establishment. The College itself is located across a large stone bridge, parts of which have crumbled to the sea below. The College has documents dating back as far as the late Second Era, though the College itself is even older. Ever since the Great Collapse, it has been sitting precariously on a surviving, inverted pyramid of rock that juts out of the sea.
