Sabbaticals and retreats at St Stephens House Oxford


St Stephen’s House welcomes sabbatical visitors.

Whatever the aim of your sabbatical, the college benefits enormously from the contributions that sabbatical guests make to the life of our community, and we encourage applications from interested individuals.

Whilst some take advantage of the wealth of facilities and academic resources that being part of the Oxford community offers, others simply come because they want space to read, think, relax or pray.

Accommodation for sabbaticals is arranged on a flexible basis, subject to the availability of rooms and we typically tailor sabbatical packages to the individual requirements of visiting scholars, clergy and others.

A sabbatical stay in a single en-suite room would cost:

£385 per week (bed and breakfast)
£451 per week (half board)
£506 per week (full board)

Or in a standard room:

£308 per week (bed and breakfast)
£367.20 per week (half board)
£407 per week (full board)
All these rates are inclusive of VAT.

Other types of accommodation are also sometimes available; for example, a self-catering flat, with kitchenette and en-suite bathroom.
