Ceremonial and other events

Sometimes the usual visitor opening hours and guided tours are affected, due to ceremonial and other events. For example, the University has a number of degree days each year. The Divinity School is closed on these days, and we offer 30-minute tours to Duke Humfrey's Library only. We apologise for any inconvenience this may cause.

Further information on Degree Ceremonies can be found on the University of Oxford website.
