Welcome to Kellogg We have been breaking new ground in Oxford since 1990

Welcome Weeks Events

Welcome Weeks is the time when Kellogg opens its doors to new and returning students, with a series of events to support, inform, and entertain.

Because we are Oxford's most international College with a commitment to lifelong learning, we bring together a wide range of people from different backgrounds, professions, nationalities and ages. As a College we prioritise being relaxed and approachable to help everyone feel at ease.

To help you settle in to College life we have a three-week programme of events so you can make the most out of College and your time at Oxford, whether you live in the city, the UK, or elsewhere in the world. Welcome Weeks has both online and in-person events, so you can join in no matter where you are.

You can find the programme of Welcome Weeks events here on the College website. Or download a pdf timetable here. Most events are free and some might require you to book, all event details are on the website.

The MCR Committee has organised a lively programme of social events ranging from guided museum visits to punting on the River Cherwell, as well as networking opportunities to meet your student representatives. To keep up to date with the MCR’s busy programme of social events, join their Facebook group here.

On the Menu

Kellogg is highly praised for its food. We have been told its the best food in any Oxford College, you will have to judge for yourself!

Kellogg’s Dining Hall is at the heart of the College. We do not have a high table, so students, staff, Fellows, alumni and all other College members sit with each other, taking the opportunity to share, support and make connections that can last a lifetime.

The credit for our fine food goes to our Head Chef, Jonathan Wilmot, and his team. Here, Chef Jon shares with us how to create his delicious chocolate brownies - a favourite with all of us at Kellogg! You can download the recipe here.

There are many opportunities to enjoy the food at Kellogg during Welcome Weeks. Brunches and College dinners will be free for Freshers to give you an introduction to what is on offer.

Join us on Sunday 10th October at 14:00 for an Afternoon Tea in the Dining Hall, with a fun discussion about Oxford traditions. Click to find out more.

Why not drop in to one of our Coffee mornings? Each week College members meet in the Hub for a free hot drink and a chat with each other. Click to find out more.
