The University of Oxford Shop is located at 106 High Street, in the centre of the ‘dreaming spires’ of Oxford. With its Oxford blue façade and traditional double fronted windows, the shop is situated opposite Brasenose College and The University's Church of St Mary the Virgin; a stone's throw from the Radcliffe Camera.
Originally a partnership with Liberty's in Oxford, the shop moved to its current premises in 1994. Today the shop sells a wide range of clothing and gifts featuring the University of Oxford belted arms, much of which is exclusive and cannot be bought elsewhere.
The e-commerce business started life as an online mail order service for the High Street shop, and has grown significantly in recent years. The website stocks the vast majority of items that the shop sells as well as its own online exclusives and a broader range of college and alumni merchandise.
The online team works with a wide variety of University partners to offer a comprehensive selection of Oxford related product including ranges from the University’s museums and libraries.
To claim 10% discount, staff, students and alumni must create an account.
