Experience Staying in a Cambridge College

Your stay at Hughes Hall offers a range of accommodation options for our summer courses, from private en-suite rooms to standard rooms with shared facilities. Beyond academics, embrace the heart of Oxford and Cambridge with daily activities, including breakfast in the formal dining hall and shared Friday dinners during your summer school experience.

Hughes Hall History

Established in 1885 during the Victorian golden age of college foundations, Hughes Hall boasts a rich history and impressive architecture. Its grand main building, now known as the Margaret Wileman Building in honour of the college's seventh Principal, was designed by William Fawcett and inaugurated in 1895. Delve into this fascinating history and explore the serene surroundings that contribute to the unique atmosphere of our academic programs.
