Keble College is at the north side of Oxford, next to the tranquility of the University Parks and is surrounded by places of interest while still only being a short walk from the bustling city centre.

Directly opposite the Main Gate are the University Museum of Natural History and the Pitt Rivers Museum of Anthropology and World Archaeology.

At the other side of College is St Giles, one of the main roads into Oxford and the location of St Giles' Fair, held annually each September, dating back to 1624. Also on St Giles are the Martyrs' Memorial and the Lamb & Flag and Eagle & Child pubs, which were frequented by authors such as Tolkien and Lewis Carroll.

The river bank in the University ParksKeble is also one of the closest colleges to the University Parks, 70 acres of landscaped parkland and playing fields which stretches across to the River Cherwell.
