During term-time, we have coffee/social mornings on Wednesdays from 10:30 to 12:00 at the University Club, 11 Mansfield Road, OX1 3SZ.

Do come along if you are new to Oxford - and if you are already a member of the Newcomers' Club. You (and your children) will be very warmly welcomed. 

Informal/ Vacation Coffee Mornings are on Wednesday 13 December, Wednesday 20 December and 3 January 2024.

Our formal Coffee Mornings in Hilary Term start again on Wednesday 10 January 2024 and end on Wednesday 13 March 2024. [The dates are also on the calendar]

Further information is available through our 'Meetups' email group.

We very much look forward to meeting you and hope to make your stay in Oxford an enjoyable one.

The Oxford University Newcomers' Club is run by volunteers whose aims are to help those who are new to the University of Oxford to settle in, to find out more about Oxford, and to provide opportunities to meet people.

Our membership includes partners of visiting scholars, of graduate students and of newly appointed academic and administrative members of the University as well as others. 



We are a globally diverse and inclusive group, welcoming people from all backgrounds. We value the contribution you make to the Newcomers' community and to the wider University.

We have put together some ideas for anyone new to Oxford who wants to make friends and feel part of the community.
