Rhodes House, Oxford, is the home of the Rhodes Scholarships and the Rhodes Trust, and offers facilities for educational and other purposes.

Inside Rhodes House

Rhodes House hosts many different types of events throughout the year from weddings, lectures and conferences.


Rhodes House welcomes lectures, seminars, conferences, dinners and other events. Milner Hall has a capacity for over 200 people. The House was completed in 1928. It was designed by Sir Herbert Baker, who designed major public buildings in South Africa and collaborated with Sir Edwin Lutyens on the design of New Delhi. It is a listed building, grade II*.

Rhodes House and its beautiful garden are open to the public, but visitors are asked to identify themselves to the Porter at the main entrance.

Rhodes House is a hidden delight, right in the heart of Oxford. Fashioned after a Cotswold mansion with colonial influences, Rhodes House has been the gathering place for Rhodes Scholars and their distinguished guests for nearly 100 years. Rhodes House is available for hire to enable others to enjoy this historic venue.

Rhodes House is the perfect location for both corporate and private events. For businesses seeking an impressive and inspirational venue, for families and friends looking for the perfect wedding or party venue, and for production companies hunting for that special film or photo shoot location, your search is over.
