Every college has a team. Many colleges have two, some have three (Wadham, for a start). There are several levels of college league, as well as several levels of University football. Feast your heart.

Extremely variable, from Blues XI down to College 3rd XI, who are unlikely to turn anyone away. You'll find a niche.

football is good. obviously, there are university teams, but there are also college sides, playing in leagues and cup competitions. there tends to be at least two teams in each college, and often three. first team standard is reasonable, 2nds and 3rds less so but it is competitive at every level. if you are committed and willing to put in the effort you will be able to play regularly at some level. I'm pretty sure LMH has a 3rd team, although i seem to recall that its one of the weaker 3rds sides (but that kind of thing changes pretty frequently).
