Access & Outreach/
Open Days and Visiting

There are lots of opportunities to come and visit us here at Jesus College. You can explore our beautiful buildings, which date back to Elizabethan times, and meet some of our current students and staff.

The University hosts Oxford Open Days every year in June and September, and we publish details of activities at Jesus College in the months beforehand. We also encourage school visits to the College, and details can be found below.

Do visit our You Tube channel where you’ll find plenty of helpful content, including virtual tours.

The Access Team offer various school visit options targeting different groups and you can find out more information in this leaflet.

To request a school visit, please complete the form here.

If you are teacher or staff member at a school in one of our link regions, please contact our Access Fellow, Dr Matt Williams, to discuss a potential visit. You can contact him by email at:

We encourage you to attend an Open Day, where current students are on hand to answer questions and offer guided tours.

If you can’t make an Open Day, we are happy to welcome prospective students for an independent tour of Jesus College. Tutors WILL NOT be available, and due to limited staff capacity your visit will likely have to be self-guided. Please contact the Admissions Officer or Matt in the Access Team to arrange a date and time.

If you intend to drop in at your own convenience, we strongly recommend you call our Lodge in advance to check opening times, the number is +44(0)1865 279700. Maps of the central site are available from the Porters’ Lodge.

In addition to the events listed above, the Academic Director or the Access Fellow will be happy to meet with individual teachers, headteachers or careers advisers by appointment and to advise on any aspect of Oxford Admissions.

If you would like to find out more about Oxford Admissions in general, please visit the University website.

The Oxford University Open Days will take place on Wednesday 28 and Thursday 29 of June and Friday 15 September.  Prospective applicants and their parents/carers/supporters are welcome to visit self-guided or join one of our lovely students for a tour!

Please check back to find out the events we will be offering at Jesus College on those dates.
