Magdalen College

Madgalen’s 550 years of rich and eventful history have left it with some of the most hauntingly beautiful buildings in Oxford. The college is at the far end of the High Street, a 10-minute walk from the centre of the city, sitting in 100 acres of woodlands, riverside walks and lawns, including the famous Deer Park.

Yet the college is so much more than a mere collection of splendid buildings and inspiring gardens that have survived the test of time. It has been a place of study and inspiration for no fewer than nine Nobel Prize winners and several other famous alumni including John Betjeman, Howard Florey, Seamus Heaney, C. S. Lewis, Dudley Moore, Erwin Schrödinger and Oscar Wilde.

We are pleased to welcome conference guests and independent travellers to experience living in this historic venue.  We have up to 50 single ensuite bedrooms, some with views over the Deer Park, and each with a private shower room. A further 110 standard rooms are located in traditional college buildings, each room with its own wash hand basin. Shower rooms nearby are shared with three or four guests. All bedrooms have a mini-refrigerator and coffee and tea-making facilities.  Towels, bathmats and complimentary toiletries are supplied.
