St. Edmund Hall

Of the 38 colleges which constitute Oxford University, St. Edmund Hall is among the most picturesque and easily accessible. It is the sole survivor of the medieval halls that predated Oxford’s colleges. As such, it can claim to be the oldest academical society for the education of undergraduates in any university. The earliest written record of the Hall dates from 1317, but it may be considerably older. It takes its name from St. Edmund of Abingdon, former Archbishop of Canterbury, who taught in a house on this site in the 1190’s. This medieval students’ hall of residence was used for centuries by The Queen’s College, but since 1957 it has existed as a separate college. Its central location in Oxford, just steps away from the coaches from London and the major airports, and a short walk or ride from the Oxford coach and rail stations, makes St. Edmund Hall an ideal conference site.
