Bed and breakfast & Self Catering Accommodation in Oxford University Colleges

Not just for students - anyone can stay!

  • A unique backstage pass providing an opportunity to stay in historic Oxford college room accommodation.
  • These bed and breakfast (B&B) and self catering rooms in central Oxford are a brilliant alternative to cheap Oxford hotels whilst providing the colleges with revenue to contribute to the upkeep of the famous buildings.
  • Trace the footsteps of Gandhi, Bill Clinton or the 25 British Prime Ministers who have passed through Oxford's colleges; eat in the college hall, wander through the college's gardens or take a punt along the river followed by a drink in the college bar.

    "It was a thrill and a pleasure to stay at beautiful Keble College, Oxford. It was conveniently located for all the sights of the city and the university. Breakfast was in a vast dining hall in a separate wing, across the quadrangle. There was a huge selection to choose from: a veritable feast! We felt most privileged to have stayed in this unique college!" Mrs Pauline H

    "Perfect. I am a foreigner and first time visitor to Oxford. In that the room and all aspects of the hospitality were precisely as advertised (in the best way possible!), this was as fine an accommodation experience as I've had anywhere in the world. Thank-you and I will certainly stay at St Hugh's again when I next visit my daughter. Truly yours, -Bob Kusyk" Mr Robert K

    "Excellent in every respect. I would unhesitatingly recommend it and will use it again and wish I could have stayed longer. It is particularly suitable for anybody who needs to do writing or preparation during their visit because that site includes fast broadband. The comfort and standard of the en-suite study bedroom was high, the cleanliness was exemplary and it was easy to sit down and get going. The catering was of a very high standard - more so than many of the hotels I've stayed in. The porters were particularly knowledgable and helpful. The beautiful gardens and riverside setting were an unexpected treat. The booking system worked smoothly too, and I would use it again for other destinations. " Ms Denise S
