Students at Oxford Brookes University are encouraged to join the Oxford Union for the duration of their course, and many choose to use it as their home-from-home in the centre of the City.
In the past few years alone we have hosted Pierce Brosnan, Michael Douglas, General Musharraf, Natalie Portman, Martin Sheen, Russell Brand, Cherie Blair and David Cameron, and there is nowhere else in the world where students can dine with the Presidents of Rwanda or Afghanistan, grill them in debate, and then have a drink with them afterwards.
The Society is run entirely by students for the benefit of its members. This site contains information about The Members' Bar (from £1.60 a pint), our nightclub (free entry to Members), the Library, speakers and debates. I hope that it will explain why we are widely recognised as the most famous student society in the world.
Debating still remains at the heart of the Oxford Union, as it has since 1823. This Michaelmas is looking particularly exciting, with world-class debates and incredible speaker meetings: from cabinet ministers and front-bench opposition, to sportsmen and celebrities from all walks of life, we have catered for all tastes this term.
Brookes Members are currently unable to join online, but why not call our General Office on 01865 241353 to request a membership form? Or, you can pop in when you're next in the City Centre, with a passport photo, your bank details and your Brookes Card.
