New College

New College welcomes conference visitors and offers a wide range of facilities for up to 200 delegates. The college has 200 bedrooms on the main site, 140 of which are en-suite. There is a selection of double, twin, single and fully accessible rooms. A delicious full English or continental breakfast is served each morning in the Hall, the oldest dining hall in either Oxford or Cambridge.

New College was founded in 1379 by William of Wykeham, Bishop of Winchester and Chancellor of England. The College stands in three and a half acres of beautiful gardens and yet is only a few minutes walk from the centre of Oxford. We have an experienced full-time Conference and Events Manager to fully support your conference for the duration of your stay.
