Live on campus?

Students that live on college campuses throughout the country sometimes have a difficult time registering to vote due a lack of a physical mailing address. With more than 31% of Oxford campus students living on our campus, we want to make that process as simple as possible. If you live on campus and do not have an on-campus mailbox (ex: at PakMail), click below for instructions about how to find the address for your residence.
