Inside the School
Park End Street
Located next to Oxford’s railway station, right in the centre of town, the Saïd Business School Park End Street building offers a large variety of highly sophisticated teaching and meeting facilities. Three floors of formal and informal meeting spaces and breakout rooms are supported by a full complement of technical and catering services.
Highlights include the Business School’s dedicated Sainsbury’s Library, a member of the integrated system known as the Bodleian Libraries, home to over 11 million printed items and a vast array of digitised manuscripts and e-resources. With the Sainsbury’s glass windows overlooking Park End Street, our hard working student’s are 'on display' day and night. Our new entrepreneurship hub sits next to our 'front door' and is open for business, welcoming student entrepreneurs from around the University.
The School also has a 300 seat auditorium and 400 seat outdoor amphitheatre where, in the summer months, you can enjoy spectacular performances of Shakespeare’s classics and musical events.
As well as oak-panelled lecture theatres with purpose-built booths for simultaneous translation in the classroom, the Saïd Business School has large, flexible classrooms, seminar rooms, and 18 more intimate board-room style meeting spaces for small group discussions.
The School has large areas facilitating interaction among students and faculty. These include two large outdoor gardens, a semicircular sun-lit café, and at the heart of the newest addition to the campus, the Skoll Foundation Club Room with a bar, lounge space, terrace and views down to the garden. These are spaces where those important, informal conversations take place to create a continuous learning experience. Banquet or buffet dining is available in private dining rooms with spectacular views across Oxford’s famous spires.
The building has excellent green credentials and is highly sustainable, using geothermal energy for heating and cooling, rainwater harvesting to flush toilets, and solar energy contributing to water heating. It includes a green roof which aids biodiversity and collects rainwater.
Two miles from Oxford City Centre, the tranquil Egrove Park campus is located in 37 acres of stunning parkland. Here students can enjoy first-class learning and lifestyle facilities , including modern classrooms and lecture theatres, a gym, tennis courts, a snooker table and a croquet lawn.

All rooms have en-suite facilities and are equipped with a phone, networked internet access, a television and other essentials to make your stay as comfortable as possible.
