Oh for goodness sake - of course it is fun. Everyone has down time when they have fun. Why worry about something like that !

Yes very fun. You might find you have a lot more in common with students there than in your existing school.

So, I'd say I had way more fun at Oxford than I'd ever had beforehand. I'd come from outer London - to go clubbing was hugely expensive, dominated by older adults and there was a genuine risk you'd get punched or even stabbed if you weren't sensible. In terms of other things, very little (except like, shopping, cinema, stuff every city has). Oxford is extremely student dominated - the youngest average age in the UK - and that was reflected in the nightlife, and what things there were to do in the daytime. You can do basically any sport you like, join a hug variety of societies, and if by "fun" you mean "alcohol", yes you can do that too. I knew someone who would go clubbing 6 days a week in their first term, not even an exaggeration. There was generally a group of 30+ going out at least 3 times per week. Was that everyone? No of course not. Will you have lost of work too? Yes of course. Can it also be fun? Obviously, yes.
