Clubs and Societies
A great way to see what’s out there is to attend the Oxford SU Freshers’ Fair on 3rd & 4th October. At the Fair, clubs and societies have representatives ready to talk about their activity, and often sign ups to participate or for auditions/try outs etc. There is something for everyone, from Quidditch to Life Drawing, and it doesn’t matter if you are a beginner or advanced.
SU TIP: Some clubs and societies are college specific and some are open to members of other colleges, for example choirs. You are able to participate in activities at both a college and university level.
Do you want to enjoy a sport you love, try something new or keep active? No problem. At Oxford, you will have the chance to play for fun, play for your college or compete for the University. Or maybe you just want to keep active, fit and healthy? Multiple college and University facilities and Oxford’s beautiful green spaces make this easy.
