Corpus Christi College

Corpus Christi College is conveniently located in the centre of Oxford, tucked away from the hustle and noise of the city’s main streets, looking over Christ Church Meadow towards the river Isis. There is easy access to the university buildings and the city shops; yet it is also free of the heavy traffic of the High Street and offers direct access to the open spaces, riverside paths and tree-lined walks of Christ Church Meadow.

Architecturally, it successfully blends the old with the new, as illustrated by the new MBI Al Jaber Building with its spacious auditorium and spectacular roof terrace. The buildings date from many periods and contain a variety of meeting rooms of different sizes and styles. Meeting rooms have full internet access and modern audio-visual facilities, if required.

Most meals are served in our magnificent hall, with its original hammer beam roof, or smaller lunches that are more informal can be taken in our Rainolds Room with access to the garden.

Overnight stays are available for up to 100 visitors in 35 ensuite rooms, the majority overlooking the college quads and gardens, and 65 standard rooms, which share modern shower rooms on the same floor as the bedrooms.  All rooms have their own wash basins.
