The Old Library: An historic day conference venue in the heart of central Oxford
Constructed in 1320, The Old Library is the first university (as opposed to college) building in Oxford and therefore uniquely important; this is where the nascent University began.

Recently renovated and updated the Old Library is now available to hire for day conferences, dinners and receptions. For more information contact the Events Manager, Ana-Maria Niculcea

The Church and Vaults and Garden Cafe are also available for hire. Please email the Church Administrator, Ana-Maria Niculcea, for all information regarding scheduling and fees associated with booking a venue within the church.
