Visit Us


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.

Self-Guided Visits

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.

How to get to the College


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.

Open Days

Our next Open Day is on Friday 17 September 2021. Our Virtual Open Day coincides with the main University Virtual Open Day, allowing you to join multiple live talks and Q&As.

Oxford Open Days in 2021 will be taking place remotely on the University Website:

Oxford Virtual Open Days

Guided Tours

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

At 1:45pm, there will be the opportunity for prospective students to meet a tutor in their subject of interest. These informal meetings will last up to one hour and will be followed by optional refreshments in our dining hall. There is no need to book in advance.
