You must remember that though you will probably not live in an Oxford college, the fact is that about half of the degree candidates do not live in their college either. They live in annexe buildings which may be a mile or two away, in houses owned by the college, or in private houses rented by groups of students.
It is not as hard as you might think! First of all, you are likely to be living with at least one British student or more if you are in large building. This student will be happy to answer your questions and show you around. In all of the four colleges that we work with regularly, OSAP arranges for one of the British students, usually the JCR President, to act as your advisor or guide, and a liaison between you and the Oxford college—especially with regards to college life.
He or she will see to it that you are introduced around the college just as if you were a previous friend of that British student.
Your Oxford Academic Advisor and his associates and other dons of your college may periodically invite you to social events of varying kinds. This is what makes an Oxford college different from a large, impersonal university.
The Junior Common Rooms have traditionally hosted a party in the college bar for incoming Associate Members, etc. In short, once you have been accepted by them, your college will make every effort to welcome you and see to it that you are treated as part of the college family.
In all of this, it is important to remember that the degree to which you involve yourself in your Oxford college often directly impacts the degree to which you are more fully integrated into the wider Oxford community, and to which your time in Oxford is more profitable and enjoyable.
