Wellington Square, Oxford

Wellington Square, Oxford

Wellington Square is a square in central Oxford, England, a continuation of St John Street to the south. In the centre of the Square is a small park, Wellington Square Gardens, owned by Oxford University. A bicycle route passes into Little Clarendon Street through the pedestrian area at the front of the University Offices in the north east of the Square.

The street name is used to refer metonymically to the central administration of Oxford University which in 1975 moved from the Clarendon Building to new buildings with an address in the Squarebut built at that time, along with graduate student accommodation, along the adjacent Little Clarendon Street.

Kellogg College and the University's Department for Continuing Education are also located at Rewley House in the Square.

The Oxford University Broadcasting Society used a studio of Radio Oxford in the Square.
