Nine centuries of development has gone into building the University of Oxford and its colleges. That work continues today with hundreds of millions of pounds being invested in new facilities both in university departments and in the colleges.
It makes the university and colleges one of the most versatile and attractive venues for events, meetings, conferences, weddings, dinners and banquets – large or small.
Meetings and conferences
The range of facilities is vast. You can hire small boardrooms steeped in history, modern lecture theatres equipped with all the latest audio-visual facilities, breakout rooms, computer suites, and modern laboratories.
We are experts at matching your requirements to the huge variety of facilities on offer.
Conference delegates and groups, small and large, can enjoy the full Oxford experience thanks to the 6,500 bedrooms in the colleges. Accommodation ranges from the traditional to modern purpose-built ensuite rooms. Bed and breakfast and full board is available at highly competitive rates. Your accommodation can be matched with the right facilities for your meeting or conference.
Do not forget, you can book a bedroom in an Oxford college whether you are attending an event or not.
Oxford takes great pride in the quality of its food. The college chefs are ready to provide whatever you need to make your meeting or event a success. That could be a lunchtime buffet, an intimate meal for a small group, or a set-piece banquet for hundreds in one of the many magnificent halls.
You can enjoy drinks in an Oxford quadrangle or a barbecue on lawns that sweep down to the river. The food will always be excellent and there is a fantastic choice of menus.
Weddings and receptions
What could be more memorable than a wedding held in an Oxford college or university venue. Several colleges and university venues are now licensed to hold weddings. You do not have to be a former Oxford student to hold your ceremony and reception in college.
