Brookes Union exists to improve the lives of all students enrolled at Oxford Brookes. The Union provides activity space, financial advice, and over 100 student societies.
The union has an independent advice service, providing free, impartial guidance on concerns from academic issues and finance, to finding good accommodation and student's rights as a tenant.
There are over 100 clubs and societies on offer at Oxford Brookes, all run by students, ranging from all kinds of music and sport to hobbies and pastimes from cake-making to politics.
As well as joining new groups, students can also create their own society, allowing them to demonstrate their leadership skills while at the same time meeting people who share similar interests.
Events are organised throughout the year, including club nights, trips away, debates and dinners. In recent reviews, students were full of praise for the great variety of societies on offer.
The vibrant mix of culture, heritage and innovation makes Oxford and the surrounding area a special place to live. World-renowned architecture, from classic to futuristic, including their very own RIBA award-winning John Henry Brookes Building, is all part of the mix. Students are never too far away from the peace and beauty of the countryside. Venturing to Harcourt Campus students can see deer and kites soaring over the playing fields of Wheatley.
With such a cultural richness it’s hard to be bored in Oxford. The many museums, theatres, parks, shops, restaurants and pubs make this vibrant and cosmopolitan city great for play and for work.
Oxford is located just over 50 miles from London and 60 miles from Birmingham and has excellent transport links via road, rail and express coach.
