Merton College

Merton College is continuously evolving and combines state-of-the-art facilities with traditional grandeur across its diverse collection of spaces, boasting modern convenience and idyllic surroundings.  The college offers fantastic contemporary spaces such as the purpose-built TS Eliot lecture theatre with adjoining syndicate rooms, as well as smaller, traditional rooms such as the Americas Room overlooking the secluded Fellow’s Garden, and the wood panelled Harrison Room and Breakfast Room.

With over 130 bedrooms, residential conferences are welcomed during college vacation time, when we have a selection of ensuite and standard rooms available across both our modern and traditional buildings.  Guests can enjoy breakfast, lunch and dinner prepared by our experienced catering team, with banquet menus being available upon request.  The exquisite ante-chapel provides an enchanting setting for a drinks reception, alongside our picturesque lawns with the historic college as your backdrop.

With prior arrangement, delegates can have the use of a comfortable common room to relax in during their free time, along with access to the modest college gym.  Wi-Fi internet access is available for all guests in accommodation and meeting areas.

360 Degree virtual tours of the facilities can be found by clicking on each area below:
