As one of the oldest colleges of Oxford University founded in 1263, we are situated in the heart of Oxford, in Broad Street, ideally located for visiting the University, its Colleges, Museums, Theatres, or just for shopping.

Standard Bedrooms are available on the main College site, in buildings ranging in age from the 1720 to 1968, having been built by Henry Keene (1759) Basevi (1826) Warren (1915) Salvin (1853) and Beard (1968).

The ensuite rooms at Jowett Walk, a 5 minute walk from the main College site, were built between 1996 and 2005 on the Master's Field (Sports ground). The architect was Sir Richard MacCormac.

All the rooms that we have to offer are used during term by students. They are not equipped to a five star standard but are provided with bed linen, towels, a welcome hospitality pack, and tea and coffee making facilities.

The accommodation offers the opportunity to experience a stay in one of Oxford's oldest colleges in rooms that are full of history built around the Garden Quad, or sports field. These rooms have been occupied by famous Old Members including Prime Ministers Harold Macmillan, Herbert Asquith, and Edward Heath. Poet Matthew Arnold, writer Graham Greene.

Your Scout (Housekeeping) will service your room on a daily basis, The accommodation is centrally heated and most radiators can be controlled individually using the thermostat control.

A guide to the College is available from the Porters' Lodge.
