Keble College - H B Allen Centre

The H B Allen Centre, located 300m from the main Keble College site, is Keble’s centre for innovation and research and is the ideal venue for events looking for a classically Oxford experience in a contemporary setting. The Centre sits at the heart of Oxford University, providing first class facilities for graduates and home to a number of successful Oxford spin-out businesses, including Oxford Science Enterprises and the Oxford Robotics Institute.

The HB Allen Centre was opened in 2018, by HRH the Duke of Cambridge, as the centrepiece in the College’s 150th Anniversary celebrations. It provides a home to Keble’s 230 graduate students, and also a focal point for aspirational meetings and events. It is the ideal venue for conferences and events offering a modern hybrid lecture theatre for up to 100 delegates with a selection of additional meeting spaces for between 8-60 delegates. The HB Allen also has the bonus of being able to offer dining in the traditional setting of the oak panelled Keble College Hall for up to 300 guests.

The Centre itself offers six meeting rooms, including a Harvard style lecture theatre with capacity for up to 100 and 250 ensuite double bedrooms or self-contained apartments.
