The Oxford University Newcomers' Club is run by volunteers whose aim is to help the newly-arrived partners of visiting scholars, of graduate students and of newly appointed academic and administrative members of the University to settle in and to provide an opportunity to meet people in Oxford.

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.




From 29 April 2022, Coffee Mornings will be held at the University Club on Fridays from 10:30 to 12:00

Other events are taking place following current Government guidelines.

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.
