Lady Margaret Hall was founded in 1878, the first of the Colleges for women at Oxford, and named after Lady Margaret Beaufort, mother of Henry VII and patroness of learning. In 1978 it became co-educational. The College accommodation is located in a variety of buildings from a diversity of periods, from late Victorian to the present day. The character of these is reflected in the style and the interior design of the rooms. They stand in extensive and exceptionally beautiful gardens on the banks of the River Cherwell. The College is within easy reach of the many facilities and sights of central Oxford, and is a short walk from the University Parks, the Bodleian Library and the Ashmolean, Pitt Rivers and University Museums. At Lady Margaret Hall we have 180 en-suite rooms. Toiletries, linen, hand and bath towels are provided in all rooms. Tea and coffee making facilities are also provided.
