Welcome to the Oxford Union
The world's foremost debating society
The Oxford Union is an extraordinary place. Nowhere else will you find a lineup of such prominent speakers or compelling debates. Every term, the Union hosts 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.
