Hello and welcome to Oxford! Congratulations on getting here and starting the next chapter of your life in a place as special as this city; you’ve worked hard, and although there are more challenges ahead, this university has so much to offer.
Keep Off The Grass, our guide for freshers, attempts to reflect as much of this as possible. Every Michaelmas Cherwell (our favourite Oxford student newspaper) compiles a pamphlet full of insightful advice, meant to induct you into Oxford-local status in eight tabs.
Thank you to our lovely and talent team of editors and illustrators. We hope that this is a handy guide as you dive into the thrilling adventure that is Oxford life, and don’t hesitate to get in touch if you have questions!
