ESN Oviedo was founded on 2011 as a section member of ESN Spain. Only one year after that, Oviedo organised a National Event. Almost 1000 people gathered in this small city and even a World Record was accomplished: the biggest number of people singing a regional anthem at the same time, the Asturian one.

On May 2013, Oviedo organised the RAFE, the biggest National Platform of the year in Spain. On 2014, ESN Oviedo developed and hosted the first full formative event of ESN Spain: the KINESI, still organised by the Spanish Federation.

During the 2014-2018 period, relations with the local university strengthened, becoming ESN Oviedo the reference association when talking about international mobility. Also, the section became more involved in the national level.
