The University of Oxford Shop is ideally located on the High Street, in the heart of the Dreaming Spires of Oxford. Established in 1990, the shop is the University’s official retail store, specialising in a wide range of clothing and gifts featuring the University of Oxford crest.
Situated opposite Brasenose College and St Mary’s Church on the High Street, the double fronted façade of the University of Oxford shop showcases colourful window displays, which entice you inside. The welcoming shop interior is wood panelled similar to that found in many colleges. The helpful staff are always on hand to give product advice or find the right size.
The front of the shop features the popular University and College gift ranges including stationery and tableware, enamel cufflinks and lapel pins; the latter making perfect gifts for those who have a favourite college and wish to show their allegiance or connection to it. The clothing section situated down the steps at the rear of the shop has a wide variety of ethically sourced clothing to suit all ages and tastes, including the traditional Oxford college scarves.
Official Clothing Range
From T-shirts and hoodies to polo shirts, rugby shirts and sweatshirts, the official clothing range is regularly updated in terms of styles and designs. For instance, pink is a key fashion colour for summer 2017 and on-trend exclusives to the shop include a pink and blue striped rugby shirt, ‘heritage’ sweatshirt and double pocket ‘kangaroo’ hoodie.
Look out for the following seasonal themes and offers showcased in the windows and in-store:
– Hello Summer! Get ready for hot sunny days, picnics in the park and summer sports. Our best-selling cricket jumpers are now back in stock along with sports-inspired, vintage-style graphic T-shirts.
– 3 FOR 2. Buy three items and get the cheapest free. This offer is available on a selection of popular items from the University crest range including stationery, logo T-shirts, mugs and teddies.
In all, the shop is a treasure trove of beautiful and quality products, and unlike all other souvenir shops in Oxford, all profits are returned to and benefit the University. Once visited, if you wish you’d bought more, don’t despair, as the vast majority of items are also available online at http://www.oushop.com.
