Unless you require overnight accommodation or lunch there is no need to book - just turn up.

Those staying overnight will automatically be booked in for an evening meal, breakfast and lunch.
Visiting Oxford at Other Times
The University’s Undergraduate Admissions Office will be running admissions talks during the school Easter holidays. Details of how to book a place can be found on the Oxford University website. You can also watch a Guided Tour of St John's video on this website which was created by some of our students.
We look forward to meeting you in 2013.
