Meeting people

If you would like to connect with people from your home country or who speak your native language, country and language-specific groups can be found at Meetup Oxford and Oxford Expats, as well as The University Newcomers' Club.

Clubs and societies at the University are also open to academic staff and their partners. They cover just about every imaginable national, special interest and sporting group, including Quidditch!

Did you know? Quidditch is a game played by the pupils at Hogwarts in the 'Harry Potter' books by
JK Rowling. Several Oxford venues feature in the films, including the Duke Humfrey's Medieval Library
and the dining hall at Christ Church. Of course, quidditch players in real life can't fly, unlike
their wizarding counterparts!
