Students laughing in the dining hall

Dining Hall

The college dining hall is located in one of the three original buildings of St Peter's, known as Hannington Hall, which today occupies a site once home to New Inn Hall, one of the earliest medieval halls of the University of Oxford.

During Michaelmas term 2018, the Dining Hall underwent a major refurbishment, with the installation of acoustic panelling and improved lighting in the ceiling and above the portraits. Information about meal times can be found in the section below.
