Oxford is renowned as one of the oldest university cities in the world and it's at the forefront of international research, innovation and learning. But outside the quads and lecture halls, there's more to this fascinating city waiting to be discovered as you begin uni life.
Jericho and Summertown are bustling areas filled with cafes, restaurants, and one-off shops. Dive into the outdoor swimming pool at Hinksey or explore the waterways and bridges of West Oxford. Cool Cowley, in East Oxford, is the place for cinemas and live music. Oxfordshire hosts festivals throughout the year, including The Wilderness Festival and The Big Festival.
Immerse yourself in the city's creative culture, with museums, galleries, theatres and venues just moments from your student housing in Oxford. Find ancient archaeology at the Pitt Rivers Museum, antiquities at the Ashmolean Museum and contemporary pieces at Modern Art Oxford. Creation Theatre Company puts on inventive performance, while the Oxford University colleges present classical music concerts.
The history of the city and the Bodleian Library has been open to scholars since 1602. The Oxford and Cambridge boat race first took place in 1829, and university rowing crews can be seen training on the river every day. Oxford is a centre of the UK automotive industry, plus science and technology businesses.
Oxford has two rail stations with links to train services across the UK. The M40 and M4 provide road access to Oxford, but parking within the city is extremely limited. Much of central Oxford is pedestrianised and there are plenty of cycle routes. There are also local bus and taxi services.
