at Regent’s Park College, Oxford
Regent’s Park College stands at the heart of the city of Oxford. Within the college you’ll find the Wheeler-Robinson “1” and “1a” flats. Windows of both flats look out over the college’s classic quadrangle on one side and out to Pusey and St. Giles streets on the other.
The college (and flats) are just a few blocks from the Bodleian Library and most of the other faculty libraries, one block from the Ashmolean Museum, two blocks from the famous Oxford covered market, and a few steps from the Eagle and Child Pub where Tolkein, C. S. Lewis and the other “Inklings” often gathered for their discussions.
All University buildings are within easy walking distance.
The upper flat has three bedrooms, two baths, a living space, and kitchen. It is available after term ends in June and through the end of September. The lower flat has one bedroom, one bath, a living space, and a kitchen. It is available from October to mid-June. All rooms are equipped with electrical outlets at both 115 and 220 volts. There is high-speed wireless internet available in both flats, and all rooms have their own telephone (international pre-paid phone cards are required for international calling). The kitchen is fully equipped with cooking utensils and dishes, and linens are provided by the college. Pictures above are of the three bedroom upper flat, but the lower flat accommodations are similar.
When the work on research or professional development projects slows down, take time to explore this wonderful city. The University botanical gardens are about a 20 minute walk down High Street (across from Magdalene College). Blackwell’s book store is just north of the Bodleian Library and the Sheldonian Theater. Dozens of excellent restaurants lie just around every corner. Museums are plentiful, and admission is cheap. And don’t forget to visit as many of the other colleges as possible during your stay. Christ Church, Merton, and Magdalene Colleges are always favorites.
