We booked rooms at Mansfield College during the students' summer break. Rooms are large and quite basic, but they were affordable and put us close to much of central Oxford. A full English breakfast is included in the room rate. Book through universityrooms.com.

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
