Life at Oxford
The City of Oxford
Oxford is a medium-sized city which is home to a total student population of over 30,000. As a result, you'll find a youthful and cosmopolitan atmosphere and plenty of things to see and do. Beautiful and historic architecture sits alongside all the main high street stores, numerous coffee shops and restaurants, and a thriving bar and club scene. Oxford also boasts a surprising amount of green spaces, including beautiful riverside walks, the oldest Botanic Garden in the country, the University Parks and college gardens. Most colleges and departments are situated in and around the city centre, and accommodation is usually on the main college site, or is only a short walk or cycle ride away from college and university buildings.
