St Benet’s Hall

St Benet's Hall was founded in 1897 as a place for the monks of Ampleforth Abbey and other monasteries to live while they read for Oxford degrees. Twenty years later it became a Permanent Private Hall of the University. The Hall is composed of a handsome Georgian house in St Giles', conveniently located close to the city centre, and a Victorian house in Norham Gardens, adjacent to the University Parks, about 7 minutes' walk from St Giles'.

Overnight stays are available for up to 60 visitors.There are 11 ensuite and 35 standard rooms. All rooms have working desks and hand basins. Shared bath and shower rooms are close to the standard rooms.

The Refectory seats 56 at one long table, allowing a high standard of dining. For larger numbers a buffet for up to 60 can be provided.

The Hall offers conference rooms, comfortable lounges, either overlooking St Giles' or the garden, libraries and other smaller rooms for social events, or informal meetings. A photocopier, fax and other facilities are available.
