Welcome to the Oxford Union, the largest society at the University of Oxford.  With a tradition of hosting debates and speakers stretching back to 1823, the Union is a student Society like no other - in the words of former Prime Minister and Union Officer Harold Macmillan, it is “the last bastion of free speech in the Western World."  

We are currently working hard to put together an engaging programme of debates and speaker events for Michaelmas, as well as exciting social events!  The full line-up will be released in early October before term begins on October 7th. If you have any suggestions for speakers, please do get in touch with us at

To take advantage of all the Union has to offer, become a member by following this link - join the conversation!
