Campion Hall

About the college

Campion Hall is the Jesuit Hall in the University of Oxford. Its unique character combines the intellectual and educational traditions of Oxford with the Society of Jesus.

Campion Hall is an international community of fellows, graduate students, and staff who share the motivation to serve 'all things human'. It welcomes applicants from a wide variety of disciplines. Its resources are well suited to students in the Humanities and Social Sciences. Campion regularly admits students working on theological, philosophical, ecological, political, ethical and other topics that contribute to the understanding and promotion of human flourishing.

As a small community which operates a common table for all meals, students experience fruitful interaction with their peers and the fellows which supports them both in their studies and day-to-day motivation. The diverse community of Campion is welcoming and noted for its inclusivity.

College facilities

Library and IT services

The library enjoys a privileged location within the Lutyens designed building. Its collection mainly consists of Arts and Humanities subjects and it is especially strong in Modern Catholic Theology, Integral Ecology, and Jesuit studies. At present its stock consists of some 32,000 volumes (including serials) and is open 24/7 for Campion members.

IT connections are available throughout the hall, in all study-bedrooms and in Norfolk House apartments.

Facilities for disabled students

Some study-bedrooms have been adapted for use by disabled students and there is step-free access to all the main facilities. Please contact Campion Hall about any accessibility requirements.


The MCR Committee, elected from the student body, organises a number of social events each term. The President of the MCR is entitled to attend meetings of Governing Body to represent the students.

Accommodation and meals


Accommodation for students at Campion falls into two categories, both of which provide high quality accommodation in central Oxford. 

Self-contained apartments are available in Norfolk House, about 100 metres from the main building. They are self-contained with a bedroom, bathroom, and kitchen/living space.

There are also single-rooms, with shared bathrooms available in the ‘Lutyens Wing’ of the Jesuit residential part of the main building. 


Campion provides free dining rights to all its students, three meals a day, every day of the year, whether they live in one of the hall buildings or elsewhere in Oxford. We want all students, whether they live in the building or not, to feel Campion Hall is their home while in Oxford.
