Old Members are welcome to book a guest room in College for a maximum of three consecutive nights, at the junior member tariff. The rooms cannot be booked for a third party. Rooms should be booked by contacting the Lodge on 01865 279120.
The first room is a small single guestroom in Drawda Hall. There is a washbasin and wardrobe in the room; shower and bathroom facilities are nearby. Access to this room is via several sets of stairs, one of which is quite steep. This room costs £28.87 per night and breakfast is included in this price.
The second room is a larger room with twin beds in Front Quad. An ensuite bathroom with shower and toilet is provided. This room is on the ground floor and is thus relatively easily accessible. The room costs £38.84 per person per night, and breakfast is included in this price.
The guest rooms are popular and often therefore fully booked. During the vacations the College offers a variety of other rooms on a bed-and-breakfast basis, and they can be booked through University Rooms. Old Members are entitled to a substantial discount on these rates, and you should email the Old Members’ Office before making your booking in order to receive a promotional code which will secure you preferential rates.
Old Members are most welcome to join Fellows for dinner at High Table. In order to book a place, please contact the Old Members’ Officer on (01865) 279214 to enquire about availability of places. It is essential to contact us at least one day in advance if you would like to dine, as dinner does not take place on every night during term, and is even less frequent during vacations.
The full details of the entitlement are as follows:
‘Provided that four years have passed since taking a degree or diploma conferred by the University, any Old Member whose name is on the books of the College and who is on a temporary visit to Oxford shall be entitled to dine at the Common Table (High Table) at his own expense, provided that he shall not so dine more than 9 times in each year and not on Gaudies or Fridays. On such occasions as he dines on a Monday during Term, he shall be entitled at his own expense to bring his spouse, civil partner or partner as a guest, provided that he shall not do so more than 3 times in each year.’
