The first floor Rosebery Room is named after the 5th Earl of Rosebery, Archibald Primrose, who was Prime Minister from 1894 – 5 and one of the original Trustees.
The Rosebery Room previously housed the Bodleian Library collections relating to history and government of the Commonwealth and African Studies. Today this splendid room, overlooking the gardens and lit from three sides, has been beautifully refurbished to highlight its unique structure and proportions. It offers a host of beautiful architectural features, and is used for events, conferences, and dinners as well as being a study space for current Rhodes Scholars.
A maximum of 60 guests can be accommodated with a theatre style or board room layout.
