About Keble College and the accommodation

Keble College is one of the larger Oxford colleges and offers all the facilities we need on one site.

This includes accommodation, a lecture theatre, smaller rooms for groups and workshops, a traditional Oxford college dining hall, a fine chapel for a concert, and the bar for social time and entertainment. There is a park opposite for those of you who like to run (or walk!). A short walk from Keble along Parks Road takes you past the Pitt Rivers and Natural History Museums, to Broad Street, in the centre of Oxford, where you can find the Tourist information centre for details of Oxford attractions and trips beyond Oxford.

Keble College Chapel

From its foundation in 1870, Keble has been committed to inclusiveness, encouraging less advantaged students to apply to study at Oxford. The architect was William Butterfield, who chose to build in polychromatic brick, a rather different style from the traditional stone university buildings seen elsewhere in Oxford.

The college website has some interesting pages about the history of the college and its architecture (http://www.keble.ox.ac.uk).

Accommodation will be in rooms which are used by students during term time. Most rooms are single with their own bathroom. For a slightly lower price you can book a room which shares a bathroom with one other room. Double rooms for people coming with an accompanying person, or for partners who are both coming to the conference, are available. Early booking is essential to secure one of these as there are fewer available to us.

If you wish to stay at Keble before or after the Congress you will need to book yourself. To make a booking go to Keble bed and breakfast accommodation If you mention that you are attending the Balint conference, you should be able to stay in the same room. We suggest that you do this early, as colleges are popular places for visitors to Oxford to stay, so the college cannot guarantee availability.
