Bed and Breakfast Overview
University College (in full, The Master and Fellows of the College of the Great Hall of the University of Oxford, colloquially known as Univ) is the oldest of the colleges that make up Oxford University. We are located in the centre of the city, minutes away from outstanding shops, restaurants, pubs, parks, museums, theatres and the Thames. Find out more about Univ on our History page.
Our historic buildings have been modernised for 21st century needs and there are several peaceful quads and gardens to explore.
The study rooms available, occupied in term time by our students, are equipped with bed linen, towels and a hospitality tray with tea and coffee making facilities, and a small refrigerator. Rooms are serviced daily by the friendly “scouts”. Shared facility rooms are fitted with hand basins and there are showers and toilets in each staircase or block.
Either cooked or continental self-service breakfast is available 8am-9am, Monday to Saturday, and 9am-10am on Sunday. Breakfast is eaten in Univ’s famed Hall; a unique and truly memorable way to start your day.

Oxford is known, thanks to poet Matthew Arnold, as the “city of dreaming spires” and, with its abundance of historic colleges – many of which are open to the public for visits – and wealth of architectural gems, it’s impossible not to admire its beguiling beauty. But Oxford is also so much more than bricks and mortar…
It is also home to the spectacular Oxford Botanic Garden, founded in 1621 and just a five minute walk from Univ. There are spacious and relaxing parks – including University Parks and South Park, Thames-side walks, punting opportunities, and the chance to explore the exquisite Christ Church Meadow.
Oxford’s two main theatres, the New Theatre and the Oxford Playhouse, showcase world-class productions; whilst a number of more intimate venues – such as The Old Fire Station and the North Wall – are equally worth your consideration during your stay in Oxford. The New Theatre, Playhouse and Old Fire Station are all within a ten minute walk of Univ, whilst the North Wall, as the name suggests, is a little further north of the centre – 10-15 minutes by taxi or bus.
When it comes to museums and galleries Oxford is, again, world-class. The Museum of Natural History, the Pitt Rivers and the Ashmolean (the World’s oldest university museum) are spectacular treasure troves as are the likes of Museum of the History of Science, the Story Museum, Modern Art Oxford, and many more. It’s not just the students who learn in Oxford.
A hard day’s exploration or shopping in the historic Covered Market or newly opened Westgate Centre can be amply rewarded with fine dining or a visit to one of Oxford’s world-renown pubs, including the “Morse Pubs”.
And did we mention Harry Potter?
