Wycliffe Hall is a Church of England theological college and a Permanent Private Hall of the University of Oxford in the United Kingdom. It is located on the Banbury Road in central North Oxford, between Norham Gardens and Norham Road.

Wycliffe Hall provides theological training for candidates for ordained ministry in the Church of England as well as other Anglican and non-Anglican churches. The college also prepares people for lay ministry. There are also a number of independent and undergraduate students reading theology. The college offers both full-time and part-time study.

History

Wycliffe Hall was established in 1877 as a centre for training Christian leaders and is named after the religious leader John Wycliffe. It became a Permanent Private Hall of the university in 1996. It is a centre for Evangelical Anglican study in the University of Oxford.

As part of becoming a Permanent Private Hall, Wycliffe Hall now also offers courses in academic theology and has a limited number of both undergraduates and postgraduates. It was established alongside Ridley Hall, Cambridge as a pair of theological colleges with an expressly Evangelical ethos. [Kings, 2003.
