Wadham College

Wadham College offers a variety of historic and modern rooms suitable for small or large business or social occasions, gourmet cuisine and accommodation in a myriad of comfortable en-suite and standard guest rooms.

Wadham is one of the largest colleges of the University of Oxford, with approximately 450 undergraduate and 150 graduate students. The College was founded in 1610 by Nicholas and Dorothy Wadham and is situated in the heart of Oxford, close to the iconic Sheldonian Theatre. Historically, Wadham's major claim to fame dates from just after the Civil War. A group under the aegis of the Warden, John Wilkins, was at the forefront of the 'scientific revolution' in England. Its meetings led directly to the foundation of the Royal Society. Distinguished members over the years include: Sir Christopher Wren, Sir Thomas Beecham, Cecil Day-Lewis, Michael Foot and Dr Rowan Williams.

The original building, the Front Quad, is a striking example of Jacobean architecture, incorporating the main entrance, rooms for fellows and students, and a magnificent hall and chapel. Wadham has expanded over the centuries, most recently with the provision of a new state-of-the-art Graduate Centre, opened in October 2012, with two purpose-built meeting rooms for hire.
