Welcome to the Conference of Colleges website.

Oxford's 38 colleges and 6 Permanent Private Halls are both an integral part of the collegiate university and also independent, self-governing academic communities.

The Conference of Colleges is where they come together to deal with matters of shared interest and common purpose. The Conference, and its sub-committees, have two main functions.

Firstly, it enables colleges to act collectively on issues that matter to them. This may range from sharing information and good practice, to acting together to procure expert advice or services.

Secondly, Conference acts as a voice for College interests within the university community. Conference enables Colleges to debate and act upon the key issues of the day. Shared views and policies are developed and decisions made. This enables a collective college perspective to be communicated widely and to influence university decision-making.
