St Benet's Hall, Oxford

Experience what it is like to study in Oxford! During your time with Oxford Summer Courses, you will stay in one of eight world-renowned Oxford University Colleges. The colleges are located throughout the city of Oxford, all within walking distance of the city centre, which has historical buildings, tourist attractions, and shops.

When St. Benet's Hall was first founded in 1897, it served as a residence for monks from Ampleforth Abbey and other monasteries while they pursued degrees from Oxford University. The hall was named after St Benet, a medieval English saint, and martyr. The college, which is the tallest structure on St. Giles with views of Oxford's city centre, still closely resembles the traditional study halls that were first established. Throughout its history, St Benet's Hall has produced many notable alumni, including the sculptor Martin Jennings, the British theatre director James Roose-Evans, and the conductor John Balme.

Students have access to a cosy common room, which provides a relaxing setting for chatting, watching a movie, or playing games. While your classes may be on-campus, you will have plenty of reasons to leave the campus and experience the city.
