If your child or ward is thinking of studying here, or trying to choose an Oxford college, we encourage you to come and have a look around St Edmund Hall with them.
If you wish to explore St Edmund Hall at your own pace, you are welcome to visit whenever the College is open. There is no need to let us know in advance, but occasionally the College is closed (for example, if we have a large event such as graduation), so we would advise you to call the Porters’ Lodge (01865 279000) to confirm the opening hours on the day of your visit. When you arrive, please introduce yourself to the porter in the Lodge (at our entrance on Queen’s Lane).
You can collect a Visitors’ Guide and a map of the College from the Porters’ Lodge.
If you would like to be shown around the College, please contact our Outreach Team, who may be able to arrange for one of our Student Ambassadors to meet you and act as your guide.
In the meantime, you may wish to look at our virtual 3D tours or our College Prospectus.
Information for Parents
The University of Oxford publishes a guide for parents and carers who are supporting their child or ward in an application to Oxford.
You may also wish to use some of the resources on this website, which outline factors such as fees and myths about applying, as well as signposting further information on the application process to Oxford.
Our next in-person Open Days are on Wednesday 28, Thursday 29 June and Friday 15 September 2023.

The College will be open from 9:30am until 4:30pm on each Open Day, and our team of Student Ambassadors will be running tours of Teddy Hall leaving every few minutes throughout the day – no booking is required. Our student team will represent most of the subjects we offer and there will also be members of admissions staff on hand all day to answer questions.
Meet the Tutors Drop-in
From 2pm to 3:30pm, there will be the opportunity for prospective students to meet a tutor in their subject of interest. These informal drop-in meetings will allow prospective students to hear more about teaching at Oxford and Teddy Hall, as well as ask tutors any questions about the course or application process. There is no need to book in advance. Tea and cake will be available throughout the tutor meetings.
St Edmund Hall is a relatively small college arranged around the Front Quad and Rear Quad. Due to the age of the College, and the mix of building styles, some areas are more accessible than others. Please read this Oxford Access Guide to the Hall before your visit. If you have any accessibility questions, please contact the College’s Disability Officer, Mark Blandford-Baker.
Please check our courses page for a full list of undergraduate subjects offered at St Edmund Hall. Before you visit, why not have a look at our Prospectuses?
If you have any questions about the Open Days or about studying at St Edmund Hall, please contact our Access & Outreach Coordinator, Rebecca Smithson, on email@example.com.
