Balliol College

Balliol College was founded in 1263, making it one of the oldest colleges of the University of Oxford. From the middle of the 19th century, Balliol was rebuilt by a succession of eminent architects: Waterhouse, Butterfield, Keen and Salvin.

Other buildings around the college are a medley of styles from the 15th century right through to the 20th century.

Our location in the heart of Oxford is ideal for conferences, training courses and corporate hospitality. Oxford has an excellent public transport service, so the college is easily accessible by rail, coach and bus from London and the rest of the UK, with direct links to Birmingham and London international airports.

We are proud of our reputation for providing a high level of service and outstanding cuisine. We have an excellent team of domestic staff, all dedicated to giving you and your guests an enjoyable and memorable college experience. We also recognise that the success of your conference reflects on you and your organisation, so we ensure that we make you our first priority. Our dedicated conference and events team will liaise with you before, during and after the event to make sure that all your expectations are met.
