Conferences & Events in Oxford
A unique setting for your conference or event in Oxford
Part of the University of Oxford, Keble College offers a unique setting for conferences and events of all shapes and sizes as well as over 400 ensuite bedrooms across two sites.
The main College site on Parks Road was opened in 1870 and is characterised by its distinctive red brick architecture. The more recently built H B Allen Centre, opened in 2019 by HRH Prince William, the Duke of Cambridge, has a far more contemporary design and is a five-minute walk from the main College site.
Together the College sites offer two hybrid Lecture Theatres, 16 additional syndicate rooms, ample outdoor space for marquees or receptions, as well as Keble’s renowned Dining Hall (the longest in Oxford) with seating for 300.
Whatever your event needs, Keble has the space to provide you with an exceptional experience in a unforgettable setting.
The original main College site offers one of the most distinctive settings in Oxford.
Split between four main quads, the College blends the characteristic red brick architecture of Liddon and Pusey Quads with the more contemporary Sloane Robinson, Arco and Heyward DeBreyne buildings.
Located just 300 metres north of the main College site, our graduate centre, The H B Allen, is one of the most exciting and significant new building projects in Oxford.
The centre hosts quality accommodation, a lecture theatre, seminar rooms as well as exhibition and performance spaces.
As one of Oxford University’s largest colleges, Keble is a popular destination for conferences.
We are a distinguished venue made famous for breaking the traditional mould of Oxford colleges and are now well appreciated by the visitors of our listed buildings as well as picturesque surroundings.
Keble College can offer rooms and event space to suit all occasions and for those events where not all the guests can be present in person our state of the art AV Technology ensures that any meeting has hybrid capability to enable both speakers and delegates to access events remotely.
