  • Directions and maps

    Driving to the Harcourt Hill Campus

    From the city centre drive out of Oxford on the Botley Road, continue past Harcourt Tower, under the A34 flyover. At the traffic lights, just beyond bridge turn left, into Westminster Way. Continue for half a mile, bearing right (up Harcourt Hill) just before the road rejoins the A34 northbound slip road.

    Motorists coming from the A34 southbound should come off at the Botley Interchange; take first exit (to Botley and Oxford). Turn right at the first set of traffic lights, left at the next, into Westminster Way. Continue for half a mile, bearing right (up Harcourt Hill) just before the road rejoins the A34 northbound slip road.

    Motorists travelling northbound on the A34 should leave at the junction signposted Harcourt Hill Campus (just after you enter the 50mph section at Oxford). This junction should be exited with care as the slip road is short. Immediately after leaving the A34 you will take a sharp turn left signposted Harcourt Hill, Westminster College. The campus is at the top of the hill on your right. (If you miss the exit off the A34 you should leave at the next junction, the Botley Interchange roundabout, and follow the signs for Oxford and then Westminster College.)

    From Swindon, A420 drive towards Oxford until the Botley Interchange roundabout, take second exit (to Botley and Oxford). Turn right at the first set of traffic lights, left at the next, into Westminster Way. Continue for half a mile, bearing right (up Harcourt Hill) just before the road rejoins the A34 northbound slip road.

    Coaches from the airport and London stop near Oxford Brookes Headington campus (PDF) on Headington Road. You will have to walk about 300 metres from the stop to Oxford Brookes' main entrance, which is on Gipsy Lane. If you have lots of luggage with you and need a taxi to your accommodation, stay on the coach until the last stop, which is Gloucester Green coach station in the centre of Oxford. It is much easier to find a taxi from there.
