Open day school booking request

Thank you for your interest in booking overnight accommodation for a school group for one of our Open Days.

Please submit the below form and we will be in touch soon after to let you know if your booking has been confirmed. The overnight accommodation enables students to start their day at St Hilda's and then explore the University's Open Day for the remainder of the day.

We are only able to accept bookings from groups at UK state schools, bringing students who are entering their final year of A Levels/IB (or equivalent) in September 2024. We will prioritize bookings from schools based in our link regions of Hampshire and Surrey. However, we are very happy to receive requests from schools further afield, for whom the cost of staying in Oxford would normally make the trip impossible. We are not able to accept direct bookings from prospective students or their parents.

We have a very limited amount of parking space available on site. However, all of Oxford's Park and Ride sites are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. Vehicles can be left overnight. Maximum stay 72 hours. More information on parking a mini-bus or other high-sided vehicle, which is limited to certain Park and Ride sites, is available on the council website. We would encourage you to use the Park and Rides if at all possible.

If your booking is confirmed, we will be in touch closer to the time regarding detailed information for guests, and to collect names, dietary requirements and access requirements. We look forward to welcoming your students to our Open Day!

Room information

School groups will be grouped together. All rooms are individual, but bathroom facilities are normally shared (i.e. most rooms will not be en-suite). Bedding and towels will be provided in each room and breakfast is expected to be served between 08:00 and 09:00. Check in from 3pm. Delegates will need to have checked-out of their room by 10am. We have limited storage facilities for bags if you're unable to store luggage in your vehicle.

As part of your stay with us you will be given a small-group tour of St Hilda's, after breakfast.

Further information will be sent to groups with secured bookings. We have accommodation available on the following nights:

  • Tuesday 25th for Wednesday 26th June 2024 Open Day
  • Wednesday 26th for Thursday 27th June 2024 Open Day
  • Thursday 19th for Friday 20th September 2024 Open Day
