The Oxford East constituency was created in 1983. Between the elections of 2005 and 2010, its boundary changed to include most of the city centre and therefore the majority of the colleges of the University of Oxford.

It was held by the Conservatives for the first four years, then from 1987 to the present by Labour (Andrew Smith)

Labour majority: 10,344 in 2001, 963 in 2005, and 4,581 in 2010
