Our hosts are carefully selected and many of them have been working with us for years. Most are located in the Cowley and Headington suburbs, 15 – 25 minutes from Magdalen College School by bus, but we also have some homestay within walking distance.
Homestays provide breakfast and dinner in the home, with a packed lunch every day. Accommodation is provided in twin rooms.
We have top quality residential accommodation in the modern Clive Booth hall of residence, where all rooms are en-suite, single and extremely comfortable. The halls themselves are short walk (or even shorter bus ride!) from Magdalen College School campus, where breakfast, lunch and dinner are served every day in the dining room.
We also have standard rooms (with shared bathroom facilities) in St Hilda’s College, next to Magdalen College School.
The minimum age for residential accommodation is 14 years.
