    Long term plans outlined for University student services and Oxford SU space

    University student services will be consolidated into a single student hub in Wellington Square from 2026, while Oxford SU will move to a new home in the Exam Schools.

    The plans are part of a wider project to increase the efficiency and effectiveness of central University space, support collaboration and free up funding to support essential services.

    Under the new arrangements, the University Offices at Wellington Square will be transformed into a central, easily accessible hub for students.

    However, due to the changes in IT regulations to prevent automatic email forwarding to an external account, you must not set up email forwarding when your Oxford account expires.

    Student Stories: Diversifying sport at Oxford

    The Journey so far

    Oxford is actually my hometown(!), though I did my undergrad in London. I am a bit of a sports fanatic, (both as an athlete and a fan!), playing in the GB student korfball team, and five University sports teams during my time here, as well as dabbling in college rowing and long-distance marathon running. I was also lucky enough to volunteer at both the men’s Euros 2020, and women’s Euros 2022.
