St John Street
Blackfriars Hall provides a small number of high-quality, good-size rooms for students, located in two adjacent houses in St John Street, a two-minute walk away from the Blackfriars site. Both properties have a garden in which students can relax.
The accommodation is ideally located in a well-lit street right in the heart of the city, close to the main sights and attractions, and convenient for University facilities, but slightly away from the main bustle and city noise: perfect for balancing the need for study and recreation.
The houses are in easy walking distance of both bus and rail stations.
33 St Giles Annexe
In 2019-20, the Hall opened four new en-suite student bedrooms in a shared flat on the 3rd floor of the Hall’s Annexe building at 33 St Giles. While the accommodation is ideally located next to the shops and amenities of Little Clarendon Street as well as the Radcliffe Observatory Quarter, the rooms also excellent sound-proofing insulations thus keeping away the noise of St Giles to support quiet study.
Access arrangements include an accessible lift, with one bedroom considered suitable for a range of disabilities. Further adaptations can be undertaken within the accommodation to support wheelchair users.
Detailed access information about Blackfriars’ accommodation and other facilities can be found in our entry on the Oxford Colleges Access Guide.
Other Accommodation Arrangements
For 2022-23 academic year, the Hall has secured eleven additional rooms, five en-suite and six non-en-suite, for Blackfriars students in two new locations. These are in Jericho (North Oxford, five en-suite rooms) and in the Iffley Road area of East Oxford (six non-en-suite rooms, in a house that will be occupied entirely by Blackfriars students). Please note that prices and terms and conditions for these rooms will be different than for the Hall’s other managed accommodation.
Please contact the Hall Bursary (Anneli Chambliss Howes and Pauline Lloyd) who will be pleased to provide further information.
