If you fancy staying somewhere clean and tidy, well placed for the Colleges and the Bodlean/Sheldonian etc. then staying in Uni' accommodation at Mansfield is worth a go. You'll get a comfy bed, tea/coffee making tray, loo and a shower but no TV or hotel feel. Towels changed and room cleaned each day (I was there for 2 days). My room (1, in the garden building I think it was called) was quiet and warm, and it's a very short stroll in the morning into the College Crypt Cafe' for breakfast. Excellent choice of the usual, full English or pastries / cereals etc. Walk into the High St. was about 10 min's, and say 20/25 min's to the station. No hills to walk up and down. There is no parking; I took the train.

Stayed in a twin room for a breakfast meeting with CIMA. Really spacious room with a sink in the bedroom. The bath and toilet were just outside of the room. Good breakfast. Will be staying here again. Really helpful and welcoming staff in the Porter's lodge. They really helped to make it a wonderful stay

In 1838 Spring Hill College was set up in Birmingham for non-conformists precluded from an Oxbridge education by a pre-condition of adherence to the Church of England. Only after the University Tests Act 1871 removed this discrimination Spring Hill moved to Oxford in 1886 and was renamed Mansfield College. In 1889 the splendid Victorian buildings which exist today were completed. Originally a men only College it became co-educational in 1913. It became a permanent private hall in 1955 but only achieved full college status in 1955. The college chapel gives the fullest expression to its non-conformity status with a range of stained glass windows and statues dedicated to the likes of Oliver Cromwell and William Penn. Honorary fellows include Jimmy Carter and Shami Chakrabarti.

Thank you for taking the time to submit a review for Mansfield College. I am delighted that you have given us four stars, and have included some history of Mansfield. We have recently completed our newest student accommodation building, The Hands Building, which also includes a rather beautiful Lecture Auditorium. I hope that you will come back and see us again. With best wishes The Mansfield Team
