The College is pleased to be able to offer accommodation in student bedrooms during the vacation periods.

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.More
