Modern or traditional, large or small, intimate or public, our meetings spaces have been designed to address every need.

From the moment you step through the main door at Harris Manchester College you will be met with a smile and a warm welcome. From initial enquiry to departure of the last guest, you will feel at the centre of a dedicated team which include our Conference Manager, Accommodation Manager, our award winning Chef, IT department, and High Steward. We pride ourselves on the speed of our response to your questions, queries and concerns. Communication is key to the success of any event. Our top team are involved throughout the planning process in order to ensure that we deliver on our promises and on your expectations.

Flexibility is key to every meeting space and is not dictated by AV facilities. The College occupies a quiet quarter in the heart of the city within easy walking distance of the Sheldonian, the Pitt Rivers, the Ashmolean, and the wonderful green spaces in University Parks where early evening cricket provides a glimpse of Oxford life at the end of a long day.

Types of Conference

Day Conferences are welcomed at Harris Manchester College throughout the year. We charge a fully inclusive Daily Delegate Rate to simplify your budgeting needs. To make an initial enquiry Please contact Nick or Natasha on

Unlike other larger colleges most of our events enjoy exclusive use of the college and grounds.

All seminar rooms, dining facilities and accommodation are located on a single college site in the city centre, which incorporates delightful gardens and quadrangles. The residential conference experience at Harris Manchester College delivers the best of what we have to offer.

Our efficiency and flexibility is reflected in the number of conferences that return to Harris Manchester year on year.
