Jesus College

Jesus College was founded in 1571 under the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, making it the only Elizabethan college within the University of Oxford. It is officially known as 'Jesus College in the University of Oxford of Queen Elizabeth's Foundation', although its first benefactor was Hugh Aprice (or Price), a churchman who had previously been educated at the university. Notable old members include T E Lawrence, Harold Wilson and Norman Manley.

Jesus is in the heart of Oxford city centre and offers a wide range of easily accessible meeting and conference facilities for up to 100 delegates, as well as accommodation out of term time.

Our purpose-built Ship Street Centre has an attractive reception area, lecture theatre seating 100 and two smaller meeting rooms. There are further meeting and seminar rooms available in college, all available with data projection and wireless internet access.
