LGBTQ community

We are committed to actively supporting our LGBTQ (lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender and queer/questioning) members and create an environment where everyone can feel welcomed and relaxed. 

Our Purple Spires group encourages current students and alumni members of the LGBTQ+ community to join together to develop resources and increase awareness and understanding of issues at the School and in the business community. The group organises various informal social events throughout the year, as well as formal college dinners.

As a student you will gain access to the group's intranet page which includes:

  • resources and information
  • how you can get involved in this diverse community 
  • connecting with LGBTQ+ school alumni

You will also have access to the University of Oxford’s LGBTQ+ Society which hosts popular social events and promotes welfare services. Many colleges also have their own LGBTQ+ organisation for graduate students.
