Keble College, Oxford
(3.9/5 based on 75 reviews on the web)
Keble College is one of the constituent colleges of the University of Oxford in England. Its main buildings are on Parks Road, opposite the University Museum and the University Parks. The college is bordered to the north by Keble Road, to the south by Museum Road, and to the west by Blackhall Road.Keble was established in 1870, having been built as a monument to John Keble. John Keble had been a leading member of the Oxford Movement, which sought to stress the Catholic nature of the Church of England. Consequently, the College traditionally placed a considerable emphasis on theological teaching, although this is less the case now. In the period after the second World War the trends were towards scientific courses (the major area devoted to science east of the University Museum influenced this) and eventually co-education for men and women from 1979 onwards. As originally constituted it was for men only and the fellows were mostly bachelors resident in the college.It remains distinctive for its still-controversial neo-gothic red-brick buildings designed by William Butterfield. The buildings are also notable for breaking from Oxbridge tradition by arranging rooms along corridors rather than around staircases, in order that the scouts could supervise the comings and goings of visitors. (Girton College, Cambridge similarly breaks this tradition).

  • One of the more large, style neo-Gothic in brick polychrome, work of the architect Butterfield, is impressive all the joint architectural, impressive stays as the dining room for 300 Diners and the library. Special mention of the dimensions of its polychrome Chapel, its organ, and la Luz de el Mundo.

  • I've used Keble College accommodation for visiting concert artists at Oxford Proms concerts in the Sheldonian Theatre and have had very good feedback.
  • Keble is one of my favorite colleges in the whole of Oxford. It's beautiful. The grounds are gorgeous, the cathedral is quite ornate, and the brick colors are unique from the other colleges. Absolutely worth a visit.
  • A very nice place to stay. The hall is a worth seeing, far more impressive than the christ Church. The stay is suddenly a big part of the holiday.
  • donot book this it is a beautiful location and good rooms, with good shower but they donot care abt the clients as their hygiene is terrible the shower has a black line, with mould, totally not needed, but no attention if you check out, the fresh towels & bedding for the next customer are put on the foor near the door, just on the floor, no plastic under or anything else. I looked around as it could be just 1 lady who is doing this system, but it was all over I spoke with manager, who "act" shocked and would change the system promptly he thank me & asked my email address so he could keep me posted I waited with this comments for over one month, but I never heard from them anymore
  • Stunning college with amazing accommodation and great food
