Examination Schools

The Examination Schools is Oxford’s largest city centre event venue.  The Grade II listed building was designed by Sir Thomas Jackson and constructed in the late 1880s to house the University of Oxford’s examinations. Whilst still used for this purpose today, this historical space boasts 12,000m2 of floor space and a range of stunning original features.

The venue is ideally appointed for large events such as conferences, symposiums, exhibitions, fairs, dinners and functions. There is also a range of smaller spaces suiting day meetings, workshops and training courses.  We are experienced in a wide range of academic, corporate, association and leisure events.

To see more of the venue, view our venue guide video here.

The Examination Schools is part of the Oxford University Event Venues portfolio which also includes the Sheldonian Theatre, St Luke’s Chapel and Osler House.
