Frequently asked questions

 

What accommodation can you recommend?

The following hotels/hostels are all located in the heart of Oxford, in close proximity to the venues in which our conference will be taking place:

  • YHA Oxford (from £30 per person per night)

  • Mercure Eastgate (from £58 per person per night)

  • Cotswold Lodge Hotel (from £52.50 per person per night)

  • Eurobar (from £37.50 per person per night)

  • The Buttery Oxford (from £50 per person per night)

We hope this provides a wide range of options to choose from, so you can find the accommodation that would best fit your school.

 

What do you recommend doing for meals?

Oxford Global is delighted to be able to offer students the exciting opportunity to have a formal dinner at the Vaults & Gardens Old Library for around £40 per person, and a formal dinner at the Oxford Union for approximately £60 per person.

We will also be giving students the opportunity to have lunches in some of Oxford’s historic colleges, such as Christ Church and New College, at the price of approximately £15 per person.

However, students are under no obligation to attend these meals and there are many great places to eat in Oxford. Both local stores, such as Olive’s and Taylor’s, and chains, such as Leon, Itsu and McDonald's, are all within a 5 minute walking distance of each other and close to the committee rooms.

 

When will delegates be assigned their country/committee?

Delegates will be informed of their country/committee allocations towards the end of September, with the committee briefing papers becoming available on the 5th October.

 

What will the weather be like?

While we will of course be hoping to have a sunny conference, Oxford in November has a propensity to be grey and cold. We recommend delegates bring warm clothing, as many of our committee rooms will be in Oxford’s historic buildings which can be slightly draughty. A raincoat would be advised as well for walking around the city.

 

Who should I contact in an emergency?

For any urgent enquiries during the conference, please contact one of our USGs for Delegates:
Cara Exall on +44 (0) 7414236985 or Olivia Railton at +44 (0) 7551 072274. Police/Fire/Ambulance services can be contacted on 999. The local police station is St Aldates and can be contacted on 01865 841148.
