Our Elizabethan Hall provides a stunning location for dining.


Jesus College was founded in 1571 under the reign of Queen Elizabeth I, making it the only Elizabethan college within the University of Oxford. Many of the College’s buildings, including the beautiful Elizabethan Dining Hall and Principal’s Lodgings, are still used for their original purpose today.

Our purpose-built Ship Street Centre has an attractive reception area, lecture theatre seating 100 and two smaller meeting rooms. There are further meeting and seminar rooms available in college, all available with data projection and wireless internet access.
