Membership

The Oxford Union offers a range of membership options. You can hover over each icon below for a summary of eligibility criteria and payment options for each membership type

As part of our ongoing commitment to access, we are delighted to offer Life Membership at a discounted Access rate for eligible students. It is also possible to pay for Life Membership in termly instalments, and cheaper temporary options are available for students on shorter courses.

All members that live in Oxford are required to pay an annual facility fee of £10.64. For members on a University course this is paid in bulk for every year of your course. For further details on eligibility criteria and payment options for each membership type, please take a look at our
