The Oxford University Greek Society (OUGS) was first registered with the University of Oxford Proctors in 1968, originally aiming in bringing people from Greece and Cyprus together. Since then it has evolved into a multicultural hub for both Oxford's Greek speaking population as well as for people interested in Greek culture.
The aim of the society is twofold; to provide a support network for Greeks living in Oxford and to offer cultural, social, sport and academic gatherings. OUGS seeks to promote the culture of Greece through language, literature, visual arts, music, the performing arts, and sports, in the spirit of inclusivity and with the goal of mutual understanding.
The society helps us to share our rich culture and heritage with those around us. For this, it constantly tries to reinforce existing ties with other societies and organisations and works towards developing new ones.
OUGS is a non-partisan society and supports open dialogue and equality irrespective of race, religion and ethnic background.
