Your Union

We have reviewed and revised our approach to student groups resulting in the launch of Oxford SU Projects, Schemes and the re-launch of Oxford SU Campaigns.

Professionalised the services Oxford SU provides and made changes to governance which places emphasis on the student led nature of our student groups.

The fair welcomed over 10,000 students though the door. This is our flagship way of helping students settle, find their interest and have some fun.

With well over 680 clubs and societies represented, we helped to play a key role in their growth of membership

Achieved Investment In People, a national award that shows Oxford SU’s commitment to its staff

Launched the stash project, an online shop for common rooms to buy ethically sourced and discounted clothes for committees

National media coverage including Sky News and the BBC. We have advocated on issues as diverse as funding, access, sexual violence on campus

RAG (Raise & Give)

Welcomed the new RAG Committee. Last year they helped raise £37,356. The new committee launched straight into their strategy for the year with a highly successful Jailbreak, LOST, Blind Date, Glitter Artists, Casino services and a bungie jump

BAME Leadership

Our first Black Asian and Minority Ethnic Leadership in Oxford event – student leaders from across the university, guest speakers, networking, facilitating a more diverse student union

Family friendly Space

Created a Family Friendly space in the SU, this is a play area for students with children to relax and use our space without stress

Oxide Radio broadcasted 1000 shows, for over 25,000 hours and expanded their committee to over double giving students more opportunities to get involved

The Oxford Student nominated for publication of the year and won Interview of the Year at the Student Publication Awards

We ran the BIG OXFORD SURVEY, the first survey of its kind to better understand our members and respond to their needs. This will drive an evidence-based approach to our work in the future.
