Ver clean and warm double bed student room in a historic building in the center of Oxford. Very clean two shared shower-toilets and we only saw 1 other person using them. Staff was friendly and helpful. The only downside was the cooking smell of the kitchenet nearby.

I stayed here for 2 nights as the college rents out rooms during the holiday periods. It is both an extremely affordable and great way to experience Oxford. The location of the college is very central (more central than any hotel you are likely to find) and I almost felt I had the whole place to myself. All the main sights and shops are within a few minutes walk. There is also a good pub next door. The college setting itself is beautiful.

The room was very comfortable, was cleaned well, had a good bathroom and free wifi. The breakfast in the main hall is excellent and a great experience in a beautiful setting. The service provided by the staff at breakfast surpasses anything I have experienced elsewhere.

As one of the most affordable and authentic ways to spend time in Oxford, I had a great stay here and would happily stay the next time I visit.

There are 38 colleges in Oxford. When you see a few of them you will pretty much know how the rest of them look like.

Decided to stay a couple of nights at a college in Oxford to truly experience the student’s life. The room at the college that I had was on the 3rd floor. No lift so you had to deal with your own luggage. It is an old building over 400 years but my room was clean, bright snd very pleasant. Breakfast at the hall was memorable like in Harry Potters movie. Quiet but charming place. Will come back.

We visited as part of a tour and was impressed by the History, by its openness to Opportunity, by the Architecture, by the serenity.
It would have been so nice to be a student here.

We saw this college as part of a walking tour & were most impressed by its history as it was founded by a female, Dorothy Wadham, in 1610.

Wadham college is at the centre of everything and is in a very close proximity to Trinity College, many cafes, bars, restaurants and just about everything else in Oxford as it is all in walking distance. The exterior is impressive and gives a wonderful insight into the history of Oxford in its architecture! It is also free to enter.

I booked a night here through the University Rooms website for £40 - a bargain. I was given a charming 19th century room overlooking Holywell Street. It was the Easter Vac and I had the college largely to myself. I enjoyed wandering at twilight into the chapel and the gardens. As with most older rooms the loo and shower were shared with a couple of other rooms (which were empty) - there is an option to book en-suite in a newer building. Good wifi. Quiet and good night's sleep, and excellent breakfast - best I have had for a while - in the splendour of the Great Hall. Very extensive hot buffet. Wadham could not be more central, just a couple of minutes walk from the Bodleian Library, Pitt Rivers museum etc. Strongly recommended.

The is our second time at Wadham. We had a double room with ensuite. The room had double aspect windows with one set facing the quod, the other facing the road. The room is basic but comfortable and the shower had plenty of pressure. You have your breakfast in the Great Hall which is all a bit Harry Potter in the table department but good choice for self service.
The buildings and gardens are lovely. My only 'complaint' is that the bath towels are very small! Otherwise all very nice.
