St Stephen’s House

St Stephen’s House was founded in 1876 by members of the Tractarian movement and has stood, ever since, in the catholic tradition of the Church of England. It is an Anglican theological foundation and permanent private hall in the University of Oxford, offering formation, education and training for a variety of qualifications and ministries.

We are a small friendly college located in the heart of East Oxford. We are unique in being able to offer exclusivity to clients looking for a private and personal venue for their event. All our rooms are comfortably and individually furnished with a mix of modern and antique furniture.

Overnight stays are available for up to 62 visitors. There are one suite, 23 ensuite rooms (18 single and 5 twin/double), 24 standard rooms (19 single and five twin/double). All the standard rooms have hand basins. Shared bath and shower rooms are conveniently close to standard rooms. Towels and soap are provided and the scout (housekeeper) will service your room on weekdays. All the bedrooms have tea and coffee-making facilities and internet connection.

Regrettably, at present, the college is unable to offer disabled access.  Parking is available during vacation to those who pre-book.
St Stephen’s House provides excellent formal and informal dining options, with meals taking place within our large and comfortable dining room, or delivered to your seminar room. 

The visitors can enjoy two fantastic open spaces, the Moberly gardens and the Cloister gardens, which are available for drinks receptions, barbeques or simply relaxing between seminars.
