The College Dining Hall

Kellogg offers a range of options, whether you are looking for a formal meal or a light snack.

  • The Dining Hall provides dinners and lunches at specific meal times during term time.
  • The College Hub offers a more informal common room experience, with a Café that serves light meals and drinks throughout the working day and vending machines offering food and hot and cold drinks 24 hours a day. Click for more information on what is available at The Hub.
  • The College Bar serves a wide range of alcoholic and non-alcoholic beverages and is a great space in which to meet friends and relax.

Guest Night Dinners

Kellogg College hosts at least one Guest Night Dinner per week during term-time. All College members are warmly encouraged to attend these formal dinners, to enjoy delicious food and good company. Our formal dinners provide an opportunity for students, alumni, fellows, and friends of College, to meet and share knowledge, ideas and experience. Dinners are preceded by drinks at 18:45 and the meal starts at 19:15. Academic gowns should be worn by Fellows and current students for all Guest Night Dinners, unless specified otherwise.

All Guest Night Dinners must be booked in advance. Booking information can be found via the event publicity and the Events calendar. Please note in particular the booking and cancellation deadlines. Cancellations made after the deadline will still be charged, unless a guest from the waiting list is able to fill the vacancy.

If a Guest Night Dinner is fully booked, please email bookings@kellogg.ox.ac.uk who might be able to assist you further or add you to a waiting list.

Lunch in the Dining Hall

Lunch is served in the Dining Hall from 12:45 to 13:45 every weekday during term-time and for parts of the vacation, as specified on the events page. As we are an egalitarian community, we do not have a high table at Kellogg, so all College members sit and eat together during lunch.
