Student helpers are on hand on College Open Days.

Open Days and Admission Visits

Visiting the College

The College is normally open to members of the public every day from 2pm to 4pm (except on some public holidays and during the College's Christmas closure period). There is no entry fee and no booking is required for individuals or groups of fewer than 6 people. On arrival, all visitors are asked to report to the Porters' Lodge, on the right just inside the main entrance.

Prospective applicants are welcome to look around the College grounds, free of charge, during the afternoon, and can also collect prospectuses from the College Lodge. You may visit at other times by prior arrangement, and staff in the Admissions Office are available and happy to help with any queries during office hours.  

Schools and colleges wishing to arrange group visits are welcome to do so by contacting the Admissions and Access Officer, Claire Sims, on or 01865 278391. Please see our Teachers and Schools page.

Occasionally the College may be closed for functions.

Open Days for Prospective Undergraduates 

Our final Open Day of 2019 took place on Friday 20 September. Please check back soon for details of our 2020 Open Day plans.

Open Days give prospective applicants to the university a chance to meet undergraduates and tutors, and to have a look around the college. Anyone who is thinking of applying to Oxford along with accompanying teachers, parents, or guardians is welcome to attend.

Our Open Day programme usually includes the following sessions:

  • 9am - 10am - Early-bird session: An informal Q&A session with the Tutor for Admissions.
  • 10am - 5pm - We will be running regular tours of the college with current students, and the Admissions and Access Officer will be available to answer questions.
  • 12.35pm - 1pm - Welcome and general talk by the Tutor for Admissions and the Tinsley Outreach Fellow.
  • 1pm - 2.15pm -  Opportunities to meet with subject tutors.

Coming to an Open Day is the best way to find out more about studying at Oxford but you are welcome to visit us at any time. Please see our suggestions on how to plan your visit if you would like to come at another time.
