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 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 and writer Graham Greene.
