The Queen’s College is one of the oldest Colleges in Oxford University and is conveniently and prominently situated on Oxford’s High Street. It was founded in 1341 and now consists of splendid 17th- and 18th-century buildings which replaced those of the medieval foundation. It has about 330 Undergraduates, 160 Graduates, and about 40 Fellows (in various categories-tutorial, professorial, research, etc.).

The College provides board and lodging for the majority of its students, both graduate and undergraduates. A small number of Fellows live in College throughout the year. In addition to rooms for students and Fellows, the College maintains extensive library facilities, seminar and meeting rooms, music rooms, common rooms, and many other facilities to support the academic and cultural life of the College. In addition to the Main College site in Oxford’s High Street, there are student annexes: Carrodus Quad (Queen’s Lane), the Florey Building (St Clement’s), the Cardo Building (Iffley Road), St Aldate’s House (Speedwell Street) and Oxley-Wright (Banbury Road).

During the Easter and summer vacations, there is an active conference business, including the provision of full board to a high standard.
