Information for visitors and the local community

For Oxford Brookes, the top priority throughout the Covid-19 pandemic continues to be the safety and wellbeing of our whole community. The University has put a range of measures in place in line with government and public health advice to provide a safe and secure environment.

The University will continue to update these webpages with the latest information for visitors and the local community.
