Oxbridge- Women only colleges?

Yesterday my teacher was saying how women only colleges still exist in Oxbridge, yet I thought they had scrap them?
Can anyone give some clarification?

Thanks in advance

There are three at Cambridge, none at Oxford.
"St Hilda's College, which was originally for women only, was the last of Oxford's single sex colleges. All colleges have admitted both men and women since 2008."

St Benet's Hall of Oxford, which is a PPH, is still technically men-only. But they will start having women in 2016.
