Christ Church offers a unique opportunity for delegates to stay in student bedrooms when attending their conference, summer school, or event. 

Accommodation is available during the Easter and Summer vacation on the main site or at one of our two annexes: 117 St Aldates, a 3-minute walk from Christ Church and the Liddell Building in East Oxford (Summer only).

Single, twin and double bedrooms are available in buildings of architectural and historical interest, which reflect the different centuries since the College’s foundation. Ensuite bedrooms have their own basin, shower and toilet within the room. Standard rooms have their own basin but shared bathroom and toilet facilities. Please note: residents may have to go up or down two or three flights of stairs from their bedroom to the nearest facilities.

No accommodation at Christ Church or the Liddell Building has lift access, and some bedrooms can be up four flights of stairs. 117 St Aldates is our only accommodation block with lift access. Due to the nature of the buildings, the rooms are unsuitable for those with mobility needs.

Christ Church can only accommodate adults aged 18 and over (this includes babies/children sharing a room with adults).
