Maps and Directions

Balliol is in the centre of Oxford, on three sites:

  • The main College site in Broad Street (OX1 3BJ)
  • Jowett Walk (OX1 3TL) and the Master’s Field (new residential buildings, adjacent to the College sports ground). These are collectively known as the Dervorguilla site. 
  • Holywell Manor (OX1 3UH), the main building in the Graduate Centre, which also includes graduate accommodation at the Master’s Field and five rooms at Jowett Walk.

Jowett Walk, the Master’s Field and Holywell Manor are five minutes’ walk from Broad Street. You can see locations on the interactive map below (click on ‘Balliol College’ and then the V arrow to enlarge). Note that the Master’s Field development does not appear on this map, or on Google maps, and it does not have its own postcode; it is adjacent to the Jowett Walk buildings, on the corner of Jowett Walk and St Cross Road.
