The historic buildings have been modernised for 21st century needs. Immerse yourself in an authentic Oxford College experience. The college rooms, which are occupied in term time by students, are comfortable, yet functional. Unlike a hotel, the rooms are filled with the wonder and majesty of over 500 years of history. If you are looking for something unique in the heart of Oxford, then Brasenose is for you. Bedrooms are equipped with bed linen, towels, toiletries and tea & coffee making facilities, and are serviced daily by the friendly housekeeping team. The standard rooms offer shared bathroom facilities - a true student experience! Unfortunately, due to the age of the buildings the rooms are unsuitable for those with mobility problems. Brasenose is a working college, therefore, in order to preserve the appropriate College environment, Hen or Stag Parties are not permitted.

The Royal Charter established a College to be called ‘The King's Hall and College of Brasenose’. The founders of Brasenose College where Sir Richard Sutton, a lawyer, and William Smyth, Bishop of Lincoln. Both were from the north west and the College has retained strong links with Cheshire and Lancashire throughout its history. The greatest change in the history of Brasenose took place in 1971, when the College decided to alter the statutes to allow the admission of women. The first woman lecturer was appointed in 1972 and the first women undergraduates arrived in 1974. Accommodation is sold on a room only basis. There are plenty of restaurants and bars to choose from nearby and private dining is offered at the College for groups - subject to availability. Minimum numbers apply.
