The non-conformist college

A very pretty college. We enjoyed the MCR, the chapel and the library. The ceiling of the library was strikingly pretty.

Stayed for two nights in the hall of residence, the college located about 10 min walk from city centre. There was a canteen on campus. Staff throughout were friendly and helpful. The single ensuite room was a typical size student accommodation, clean and quiet, strong shower, dated decor, old uncomfortable mattress, strong wifi in rooms. Chapel was beautiful and can... More

We booked rooms at Mansfield College during the students' summer break. Rooms are large and quite basic, but they were affordable and put us close to much of central Oxford. A full English breakfast is included in the room rate. Book through universityrooms.com.

A friend, who graduated from Mansfield College back in a day, asked me to pay a visit and take some photos for him. It's a beautiful college with wonderful chapel. We're lucky to visit the chapel the moment the choir was rehearsing, so we took a chance to listen to calming singing.

Mansfield is one of the smallest and I think the newest of Oxford's colleges, located near the science buildings. New College, the University Club, Harris Manchester, Libacre College, and Rhodes House are all close by. The college offers comfortable guest accommodations between terms.

Thank you for taking the time to leave a lovely review of Mansfield College. You are correct, in that we are one of the newest Oxford College, we opened in 1886 and were granted full college status in 1995. We certainly are very close to the centre of Oxford, but in a quiet leafy part of the City. I hope... More

The fun thing about Oxford is discovering colleges that others haven't heard of & immersing oneself in the beauties to be found there. OK, I went to Mansfield, but I have to highlight it for several reasons: the Library's stunning Victorian painted ceiling takes one's breath away; the Chapel's stained glass windows illuminate divines from Bible times through to David...

I visited oxford this time and found a room at this small and fantastic college. It is a 200 year old college with a very lovely environment. The food is very good and relatively cheap. I loved the college bar. Just stay here, it is not a 5 star hotel indeed but it makes you feel a student again.

This college is small but the staff and everyone you meet there are really friendly and always willing to help. The quad and building, although not as grandiose as other Oxford colleges are none-the-less beautiful and atmospheric and the grounds aren't super busy like some of the other colleges since the site is about 5 minutes out of the centre....
