A fresh approach for unique events


Lady Margaret Hall has been open to new ideas since it was founded in 1878 to admit the first female students to the University of Oxford. Our fresh approach, distinctive buildings and spacious, natural landscape make LMH the perfect setting for memorable events that engage and inspire your guests.

The college is available for meetings, conferences and functions. Our Simpkins Lee theatre can host up to 150 guests with the Monson Room, located next door, providing the perfect space for refreshment breaks and lunch.

We can provide dining for small groups or up to 250 people in our splendid wood-panelled dining hall. Outside term time we can host residential conferences for up to 180 guests in en suite rooms.

Visitors can explore the 13 acres of beautiful gardens and grounds. During the summer months we have our own punts for hire, croquet and tennis are also available.

LMH is located next to the University Parks and is in a perfect location to explore nearby attractions such as the Pitt Rivers Museum and Ashmolean.

We pride ourselves on our friendly, helpful and professional service. Please contact the LMH Conference & Events Office today to discuss your event requirements.
