Oriel College

Oriel College is the earliest royal foundation in Oxford, endowed by King Edward II in 1326. The site lies in the heart of the city; its entrance and three quadrangles are bound by medieval streets and townscape whilst its back faces Oxford’s famous High Street and the University Church of St Mary. The college coat of arms carries the three gold lions of England on a red background, and the three feathers can be found in decorations and motifs around the college.

The college is fully resourced and equipped to meet modern requirements, offering present-day comfort and flexibility in historic, 17th-century surroundings. Conference facilities and accommodation can be hired during the vacation periods, while catering is available throughout the year. Meeting room capacities range from 10 to 120, and have wireless internet access and audio-visual facilities. Seated banquets can be prepared for up to 140 guests, whilst overnight stays can accommodate over 200 in ensuite or standard bedrooms. Whatever your needs, we have the facilities and expertise to ensure your event is a memorable one.
