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 centrally-located bed and breakfast (B&B) and self catering rooms are a cost effective alternative to 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.

Customer feedback

  • " A very enjoyable experience. Lovely environment, rooms and grounds both excellent. Staff can't do enough to help you. Food good and service was good. Myself and my three friends would be very keen to return and also visit some other Universities. Already thinking of Cambridge or Bath next time. Many Thanks." Mrs Joan R
  • "Keble College is a fabulous place to stay, the accommodation was immaculate, the towels white and the toiletries a bonus. The chapel is one of the most peaceful places I have ever experienced and the mosaics on the walls were beautiful. Only a ten minute walk into the city centre. This was my first stay at a university and it will not be my last. " Mrs Liza M
  • "The Oxford University Rooms initiative is excellent. This is the third Oxford College I have stayed at and one cannot better the service and facilities in terms of value for money and a unique experience in heritage accommodation. Please thank the Porters at the Somerville Porters' Lodge for their welcome and help with storing luggage on my day of departure." Dr Karen S
