Mount Oxford is one of the fourteeners of the US state of Colorado. It lies in the Collegiate Peaks, in the central part of the Sawatch Range, just west of the Arkansas River. It lies approximately 1.2 mi (1.9 km) east-northeast of the slightly higher Mount Belford. For this reason it is usually climbed in combination with Mount Belford.[3]

Mount Oxford is located within the San Isabel National Forest.
