Active at Oxford is about getting active your way - even if it’s getting off the bus a stop earlier, cycling to your tutorials, or taking an evening walk. Taking small steps to be more active can have a big impact on your health and wellbeing.
Active at Oxford
Oxford has a wealth of sporting history – and whether you want to add to this illustrious heritage, or simply achieve your own fitness goals, this campaign is all about spreading the word that sport and physical activity is for everyone.
The University offers extensive support for students. You can visit the welfare pages on the Oxford Students website to find out more about the help and services available. You can also read more about the Active at Oxford campaign on the Oxford Sport website.
Sport at Oxford
Oxford has a diverse selection of sports and activities to get involved in, including more than 80 sports clubs and more than 200 college clubs - so there is something for every interest.
Getting involved with a sports club is a great way to meet new people and settle in to University life. Evidence also suggests that students who play sport at university learn soft skills that make them more employable, and that they earn more after graduating.
