As Oxford University’s largest city centre conference venue with nearly 26,000 square feet of floor space, our flexible venue works perfectly for large conferences, business meetings, exhibitions and a whole range of events all year round. 

Meeting room space

Let our building’s grandeur impress, our location in the city centre of Oxford inspire and our catering stimulate taste buds. You can feel safe in the knowledge that our excellent team, with our high standards of customer service will be working with you every step of the way. 

Set over two floors, the Examination Schools has the ability to hold over 1,000 delegates across 16 flexible rooms allowing space for exhibitions, poster displays and numerous breakout spaces. The largest room, the South Writing Schools hosts up to 440 people. Our rooms retain their original fireplaces and wood panelling and the high ceilings and large windows flood them with natural light. All rooms come with AV facilities and WIFI access.


Surround your guests with the grandeur of Victorian architecture and have our dedicated caterers provide excellent food and drink every step of the way. We offer catering options for all occasions from three course seated dinners and buffet lunches, to canapés and breakfast options. Our caterers pride themselves on excellent food as well as their environmental and health credentials. 

Accessing the venue

We may be in the heart of the city but there’s no shortage of ways to get to the Examination Schools. Buses to and from London stop right outside our venue, as do many of the city’s frequent Park and Ride services. Both the Bus Station and Train Station are under a 20 minute walk away and have taxi ranks if required. There is no car parking on site. The venue is fully wheelchair accessible and hearing support systems are available.
