Welcome to The Oxford Union
The Oxford Union is an extraordinary place. Nowhere else will you find a lineup of such prominent speakers or compelling debates. Since 1823, the Union has hosted leaders in every field, from politics and business to sport and the arts. Members have the opportunity to meet their heroes and challenge those with whom they disagree during interactive Q&As. For those looking to debate competitively, master the art of public speaking, or find a new hobby, our debating workshops also offer something for everyone.
The Union is also the social hub of Oxford. Our Members' Bar, Snooker Room, frequent socials and termly Union Ball offer members a vibrant inter-college community. Our beautiful library and historic reading rooms also provide a comfortable and well-resourced working environment.
Joining the Oxford Union gives you the opportunity to participate in the free exchange of ideas at an extraordinary place. We look forward to welcoming you.
The Oxford Union offers partners a number of bespoke packages, which can include joint branding on debate publicity, advertisement on our event YouTube videos, adverts in our term card and physical banners, flyers, and a recruitment stand on the night of a debate. Spaces can be reserved at our exclusive black-tie debate night dinners, attended by our speakers, for your valued employees and clients. We also offer a debate night corporate hospitality package, which is highly sought after.
The Oxford Union has enjoyed successful partnerships with a variety of organisations, including Accenture, Credit Suisse, Dentons, Deutsche Bank, Hogan Lovells, KPMG, and WPP. We look forward to exploring how we can partner with you to create a bespoke package to suit your organisation’s requirements.
