About Keble Conference & Events

The first Oxford College of the modern era

Keble College was the first Oxford College of the modern era, founded in memory of John Keble (1792-1866), well known for his best-selling Christian verse and a key member of the so-called ‘Oxford’ movement. The College has a rich academic history and provides a beautiful setting to deliver learning.

The College is spread over two sites, a five-minute walk apart; Keble on Parks Road and The H B Allen Centre. The original Parks Road site was opened in 1870 and consists of four main Quads, centred around our historic Dining Hall with its wood panelling and high ceilings evoking images of Harry Potter and the Great Hall at Hogwarts School. The H B Allen Centre has a far more modern design – the centre. Opened in 2019 and offers state of the art facilities including a Harvard style lecture theatre and the contemporary Robin Geffen Café ideal for more relaxed meal or drinks breaks.

Keble College is one of Oxford University’s largest colleges. Built in 1870, its iconic red brick buildings have attracted much attention over the years from event organisers, delegates and B&B guests alike.

The Victorian buildings have been complemented by award-winning developments, allowing us to provide meeting space and accommodation on a variable scale.

Keble and the team treat every event as a special occasion. We aim to make your experience with us as personal as possible.

This usually means that you will have one main contact within the team, who will guide you through the whole process, from quoting and confirmation to on the day delivery.

Keble can cater for all types of conferences and events, with two stylish lecture theatres seating up to 250 as well as a range of syndicate rooms with capacities for 8-150.

The College offers flexible space, which can be adapted to suit even the most demanding brief.

The conference team are dedicated to ensuring that all events at the College are a success and their commitment to each and every booking is what makes us so highly recommended within the industry.

Conveniently located within the heart of Oxford, Keble has built an enviable reputation for the quality of the service that our team provides.
