Know Your Oxford. Guided audio tour with AR

Know Your Oxford  is an audio tour for new and prospective students and anyone who is interested in learning about living and studying in Oxford.  The tour provides practical information about student life in central Oxford, as well as offering insights into the city’s history. It is narrated by current staff and students and features audio, maps and images to help guide you on your tour around the city, whether you are here walking the streets or at home in front of your computer.

The guide can be downloaded free of charge through the VoiceMap app, to be used on a mobile device. If used while in the area, it can feature content linked to your current location. It can also be accessed online, via the Oxford Students website.

The guide is the result of a project funded by the IT Innovation Challenges scheme. The project was led by AAD Communications working collaboratively with the Graduate Admissions, UAO and Student Information teams.
