Living in Oxford

Oxford is a great city to live in, full of traditional splendour, intellectual stimulation, industry, culture and an international sense of community.

Information about some of the many activities on offer can be found here and on Oxford City Council’s 'About Oxford' page. You will also learn more about the practicalities of living and settling in Oxford in this section.

"Oxford is a wonderful city: dynamic and cosmopolitan, with an outstanding architecture, and where many diverse activities are possible. Working here is a great opportunity for my career and to meet colleagues and people from all over the world."
