I don’t think so. Why not ring up and ask them?

I don't think so. At Cambridge the department grew out of the development of the Fitzwilliam Museum and its research, but the Ashmolean is considerably older and has always been focused differently.
Oxford Brookes has an excellent and longstanding dept of architecture?

The school was formed in 1927 when a small group of enthusiastic young architects decided that Oxford needed a school of architecture. They formed the club to promote this and asked the University of Oxford to start the school. This was declined as no funds were available. This was the time of the General Strike of 1926. So they approached the new principal of the then School of Technology, Arts and Sciences, John Henry Brookes, who agreed to found the school, named the Oxford School of Architecture. There were three students, two women and one man. One woman left after the first year to get married, but the school grew to one of the largest in the country.[4] The department also have a society called the Doric Club founded the same year as the school itself in 1927.

So, if only someone had offered money to set it up, the University of Oxford would have had a School of Architecture. Although one suspects that it would not have the number of students that it has today, if they had to be shared out amongst a number of colleges along with those enrolled on all the other courses, given the residential requirements at Oxford (as opposed to OB).
