St John’s College

The College of St John Baptist was founded in 1555 by Sir Thomas White, a wealthy London Merchant Taylor, former Lord Mayor of London and a devoted Roman Catholic. His object was to secure a supply of clergy to rebut current heresies.

The site and buildings were those of St Bernard's College, a Cistercian house begun by Archbishop Chichele in 1437. The front of the college appears much as it did then, as do the North and South sides of the front quadrangle. The college incorporates the famous 'Canterbury Quadrangle', a masterpiece of 17th-century architecture. Since 1794, four quadrangles have been built, the most recent being the Kendrew Quad completed in 2010, which has added 68 en-suite rooms, 30 of which are available for conference use.

The college is in the centre of Oxford, 10 minutes’ walk from the train station and five minutes’ walk from the bus station. We offer up-to-date conference facilities and a wide range of rooms that we can adapt to most requirements. The Auditorium has recently been refurbished with a new fresh interior and upgraded sound and lighting. We have 30 en-suite rooms available during the summer vacation (a more limited number at Easter) and can accommodate up to 120 in standard student room accommodation. All rooms have basins, coffee and tea-making facilities, and internet access can be made available with advance notice.  Shared toilet, shower and bathroom facilities are close to standard rooms.
