A brief introduction to the college itself, identifies Nuffield College as the first Oxford College to be founded in the Twentieth Century. Named after its founder Lord Nuffield, who as William Richard Morris founded Oxford’s motor industry, the college has been at the forefront of social science research and education for over 70 years.  Built in traditional ashlar under a stone roof, the college is a beautiful and peaceful place to visit, work and study.

The College is well situated for public transport, being a 2 minute walk from the bus station, and approximately 5 minutes from the train station.  Despite being at a busy intersection, the College provides a calm and peaceful atmosphere to those using the facilities.
The meeting rooms are generally suited to smaller conferences/management away days, with internet access and audio visual provided in most.
Whatever your catering need - a canapé drinks reception, buffet lunch or 3 course plated dinner, we pride ourselves on our standard of food and flexibility, so please get in touch to discuss options.

Fine dining is available from 4 to 96 people.
Overnight stays are available for up to 10 visitors out of term, in newly decorated ensuite rooms.  All ensuite rooms have desks with computer and telephones.
