Why should I live at The Mews, Oxford this year?

Welcome to The Mews, student accommodation in Oxford.

Previously exclusive to first year students at Oxford Brookes University, The Mews is now available to book for anyone studying in Oxford.

If you are thinking about studying in Oxford this September, you’ll want to check out what The Mews has to offer. And if you’re entering your second or third year of university, then you might be considering somewhere a little bit more leisurely paced. Somewhere you and your friends can be comfortable and just ‘be’ in a relaxed environment that uni halls sometimes can’t provide.

Why The Mews?

The Mews is the ideal home for students in Oxford. Most students have a version of what they want their student home to look and feel like. And like any major city in the UK, Oxford has its own unique charm. Which makes it a sort after city that students want to have as the setting for their dream student experience.

If you opt to live in either a 4, 5 or 6-bedroom flat with friends, you’ll each have your own private bedroom, study space and bathroom. But you’ll share the kitchen and living area. En-suite rooms come with a ¾ double bed and study area with a large desk and chair. If you’d prefer more space, studio rooms offer a large living and kitchen area. Rooms all have a very open feel, perfect for you to put your own style down in.

As you make your way through to the reception you will also find a large communal space. Relax, hang out and watch TV with friends, play games or challenge someone to pool.

Outside there is plenty of space to store your bike – so it will be well worth bringing one as Oxford is known for being extremely bike friendly. If you do like to bike around everywhere, or wanted to start – you can cycle to campus in minutes:

University of Oxford – 7 minutes  | Oxford Brookes University – 9 minutes  | Ruskin College, Oxford – 15 minutes

The Mews is just off the main shopping street, Cowley Road, for east Oxford, where you will find a variety of shops, pubs and restaurants. Well situated with places to have a good time day or evening. But also not too crowded. It’s picturesque – and has plenty of greenery to enjoy walking or biking around.

Oxford city view

Just a little southeast is Oxford city centre, right on the doorstep of Oxford University’s impressive colleges, departments and facilities.

Oxford isn’t short on historical sites to explore, plan to visit the Oxford University Museum of Natural History. Or take a tour of some of the UK’s most famous TV and Film sets. Everyone is a Harry Potter fan, regardless of their age.
