Support for partners
Exploring life beyond the University
Finding professional and social opportunities for partners is an important part of ensuring the entire family feel settled in Oxford.
The University Newcomers' Club supports partners of new members of staff to the University with a wide-ranging calendar of social activities and events, along with special interest groups holding talks on volunteering and career development and employment opportunities.
Further resources for professional development, continuing education, part-time employment, or voluntary community involvement are listed below.
I have moved to Oxford twice and each time found it straightforward and easy to do. Joining the University Newcomers' Club made it particularly easy, as I was able to meet other new arrivals as well as those who had lived here all their lives who could help me find my way around.
