9.18 Children

PDF version

Linacre welcomes children in most parts of the college and at most events. We provide high chairs for the dining hall, and College members are welcome to bring children for lunches and ordinary dinners.

We do not feel it is appropriate to bring infants or children under the age of 14 to a formal guest night dinner as the emphasis at this event is adult conversation, and often Fellows are bringing guests into College for this purpose. In this environment, even a well-behaved child is a distraction. The Common Room can try to find child-minders if notice is provided.
