Nuffield College

Nuffield College was founded in November 1937 by Lord Nuffield (William Richard Morris), the famous motorcar manufacturer.  He presented the site and some £900,000 to the university for the purpose of erecting a college that would be principally devoted to the study of social, economic and political problems.  The site formerly contained the wharfs and terminus of the Oxford-Coventry Canal; before that it had been part of the ditch around the castle. 

The college is well situated for public transport, being a two-minute walk from the bus station, and approximately five minutes from the train station.  Despite being at a busy intersection, the college provides a calm and peaceful atmosphere to those using the facilities.

The meeting rooms are generally suited to smaller conferences/management away days, with internet access and audio-visual facilities available in most.  Fine dining is available for four to 96 people.

Overnight stays are available for up to 10 visitors out of term, in newly decorated ensuite rooms.  All ensuite rooms have desks with computer and telephones.
